Seems to be

a) a bug in MacOS.
b) a bug reported in french, where my reading is that an he.net tunnel is
   involved.  I don't see anything about ULAs here.
c) a bug where a client didn't get a GUA, and not surprisingly, couldn't
   ping the internet.
   "so I suppose IP assignment is fine."
   But they weren't because the router didn't assign a v6 prefix to the LAN.

Having ULAs available is critical to efforts to do HTTPS to the router.
Please do not change this default.
