Correct settings for Active Directory IPV6 comcast internet?

I think I have this set up right as far as IPV4, but I am not sure what to do with IPV6:
disable dhcp server
disable dns forwarder/127.0.0.1 dns (in general settings)
disable dns resolver
Interface ipv6 settings:
track interface (LAN)
block private and loopbacks (WAN)
send ipv6 prefix hint (WAN)
resolution /64 (WAN) (it’s a residential connection)
prefix id 0 (LAN)
Echo request from ICMPv6
This setup seems to be working pretty well, as far as the internet is concerned. ipv6-test.com gives me a 19/20 (in their eyes all I’m missing is a DDNS name for my WAN, apparently).
However, my domain controllers complain that I do not have static IPV6 addresses. I have very limited understanding of IPV6 so far, can anyone give me an idea of what I should do?
Thank you so much,

Essentially, on IPv6, like IPv4, you don’t have a static address, unless specifically assigned. However, you do have what should be very consistent address. IPv6 used DHCPv6-PD, which assigns your prefixes. It shouldn’t normally change, though it is possible.

Had a similar question myself, still doesn’t seem to be any generally accepted “best practices”.
