Huawei/Vodafone K5160 in MBIM-mode, problems with dualstack

the good news first. The modem works under linux in both modes (cdc_ether and 

cdc-ether-mode works well in dualstack too without special treatment.

I have some problem with dualstack in mbim-mode.
Using just the Networkmanager it only uses ipv4. If I use the ModemMananger 
manually with dhclient(and slaac) afterwards, I get dualstack working. 

But the ModemManager doesn't know about it:

mmcli -b 3

On the other hand, when using an older mbim-modem (K5150) it works. I tested 
with master of libmbim and master modemmanager.

Any ideas where I should continue to search?

Special settings with mbimcli?
