Hi, I want to update you guys on the issue.
I build an image for trunk and added traceroute6 from busybox.
The issue isn't that traceroute cannot hit ipv6 address, it is because the packets cannot be sent properly.
The problem isn't OpenWRT, it is most likely the traceroute binary from busybox.
I have tested adding allow any ipv6 input on iptables result: no go
The packets fail with

1traceroute6: sendto: Operation not permitted

It only worked after I stopped iptables with /etc/init.d/firewall stop

I am not sure if I should file a bug with busybox upstream or not any advice?

I forgot to mention from issuing ping6 works fine from connected clients but not on the router itself.
