IPv6 issue with netgate DNS.

Not really related to forum.. But seems there is an issue with netgate NS for ipv6.. Seems glue is given, but there are no AAAA records for ns1 and ns2.netgate.com
Some netgate links are starting to show up in the forums, and this may cause issues for some users.
;; QUESTION SECTION:
;netgate.com. IN NS
;; AUTHORITY SECTION:
netgate.com. 172800 IN NS ns1.netgate.com.
netgate.com. 172800 IN NS ns2.netgate.com.
;; ADDITIONAL SECTION:
ns1.netgate.com. 172800 IN A 18.104.22.168
ns1.netgate.com. 172800 IN AAAA 2610:160:11:3::6
ns2.netgate.com. 172800 IN A 22.214.171.124
ns2.netgate.com. 172800 IN AAAA 2610:1c1:3::108
This is the glue you get back - but there are no AAAA records for ns1 or ns2.
edit: These IPs do seem to be valid for the ns1 and ns2, since they answer for netgate.. But seems the cart got ahead of the horses and glue was updated before the NS were themselves updated to reflect the new ipv6 ns.
