Description

When un-assigning an interface, only the IPv4 IP is removed from it. The IPv6 IP needs to be removed as well.

Example to replicate:
assign em1 as LAN
configure static IPv6 IP on LAN
Back to Interfaces>assign, change LAN to em2.
em1 has its IPv4 IP removed, but still has the IPv6 IP. em2 does not have the IPv6 IP.

The IPv6 IP may not be getting added to em2 because it still exists on em1 and cannot be added:

# ifconfig em0_vlan33 inet6 2610:160:11:a000:33::2 prefixlen 64 
ifconfig: ioctl (SIOCAIFADDR): File exists
