Could an alternative explanation be along the lines of :
User turns on DHCPv6 server -> CPE configures it's RA service to label the network as managed
End user device receives RA and finds the network is managed -> it turns off SLAAC
As the EU device has disabled SLAAC and doesn't support DHCPv6, it now loses IPv6 connectivity
