I suspect you have disabled IPv6 on the interface, where IPv4 address is
configured. Check that IFDISABLED flag is not set on the IPv4 side
When NAT64 does translation, by default it reschedules a packet again on
the same interface, but from another address family, so if you have
disabled IPv6, a packet will be just dropped by ip6_input.
You can enable IPv6 by the following command:
# ifconfig igb0 inet6 -ifdisabled
