Not sure, however an experiment may be in order
# ifconfig gif0
ifconfig: interface gif0 does not exist
# ifconfig gif0 create
# ifconfig gif0 tunnel <lan IP> 188.8.131.52
# ifconfig gif0 inet6 2abc::2 2abc::1 prefixlen 128
# netstat -nr -f inet6 | grep 2abc
2abc::1 link#8 UHL gif0
2abc::2 link#8 UHL lo0
# ifconfig gif0 destroy
See if your routing table is correct after the test you proposed earlier.
