on a IPv6-only device, I play on the WebRTC trickle test page and only see mDNS candidates by default. When I enable microphone permissions, I see proper IPv6 host candidates. Tested on Chrome and Firefox.

I thought the privacy measures to hide IPs only applied to local IPv4s (replacing them with mDNS). It appears it applies as well to public IPv6s. Is it correct?

Note I ask this in a context where WebRTC is used for the datachannels and requesting microphone permissions is undesired.
