I know of one Android based vendor that isn’t shipping IPv6 support in Europe yet (they plan to) for devices known to work with IPv6.
We take a regional image from them at present.

I just tested bug fixes from another vendor to make 464xlat work with IPv4 tethering when a shared handset data & tethering APN is used.
The software developed I assume to meet the requirements of T-Mobile US didn’t work  for the above case although that case works in stock android.

There’s an original vendor that lets APN protocol be edited to IPv6 but the devices don’t include the necessary support.

Another vendor hasn’t said that they’ll support 464xlat and it doesn’t look like they’ve any plans to.
