Description

If you create a new LAN-type interface with the IPv6 set to track another interface, the new interface does not get an IPv6 address until either a reboot or the tracked interface is saved and applied. The correct behavior would be to assign the IPv6 address immediately after creating the tracking interface.

what type of WAN are you tracking? I fixed that for DHCP6 tracking in 2.3, at least for the circumstance where I was seeing issues (which was exactly as described).

It is the default WAN configuration in pfSense with DHCPv6 for IPv6. I have it configured to request a /56 and send the prefix hint with the request.

Here is the system log output I get when adding an interface:
