dpinger for WAN DHCPv6 gets fails to update gateway IP
There appears to be an issue with dpinger when the IPv6 link-local address for a native DHCPv6 connection changes.
When a PPPoE session drops, the link-local IPv6 address of the default gateway at the ISP's end changes. Unfortuntaely, dpinger is still attempting to ping the previous IPv6 link-local address and does not automtically update to the new one. This results in a perpetual "pending" blue box on the pfSense router's home page. The errors can be seen in the log files.
Ticket #8136: Reconfigure dpinger when IPv6 reconnects
When SLAAC interface is disconnected and reconnected, rc.newwanipv6 is
never executed because dhcp6c is the only trigger for that. Add a
workaround on rc.linkup to force it to run in these cases so dpinger is
configured and gateway status works

Can you provide more details on how to replicate the issue? Is it related only to the PPPoE link? Can you provide the PPPoE client setup details to replicate the issue?
Before the fix I just unplug WAN cable and plug it again and gateway moved to Pending status forever
