The devices, I have,  work with slaac.( the modems in lower part of the table 
are ipv6-capable qmi-devices, )

Yes, there were problems with mac addresses at some devices, but Bjørn Mork 
has solved these problems, if I remember correctly.

Prefixes, /64. I don't care about IMSI or other mobile specific numbers.

I have an IPv6-test account(vodafone germany) again, within the next days I 
will start to test again and compare the mm-logs with the results of slaac.

For IPv6-DNS-resolver we need outband config anyway.
