Hub One - are these changes recent - hub manager prepared for IPv6

 

I've been going through some data saved on my laptop and then happened to notice something different. So I went to check and it appears that something has changed, but I'm not sure when this happened.....

 

Via the hub manager:

Advanced Settings -> Broadband -> IPv6 Status

I'm sure it stated:
IPv6 Configuration is not currently enabled as your Plusnet Hub and/or Plusnet Broadband Network are not enabled for IPv6.
Plusnet will automatically upgrade your Plusnet Hub when IPv6 is enabled on the Plusnet Broadband Network.

Now it states:
IPv6 Hub Status: Disabled
IPv6 Network Status: Disabled

IPv6 will be disabled on your Plusnet Hub and Plusnet Broadband Network until supported by future services

Advanced Settings -> Home Network -> IPv6 Configuration

I'm sure it stated:
IPv6 Configuration is not currently enabled as your Plusnet Hub and/or Plusnet Broadband Network are not enabled for IPv6.

Now it states:
Name: dsldevice.lan
Global Unicast Address: Not available
Link Local Address: Not available
Global Unicast prefix / length: Not available

ULA
Enabled: Yes (Recommended)      No

Advanced Settings -> Firewall -> IPv6 Pinholes

I'm sure it used to say:
IPv6 Pinholes is not currently enabled as your Plusnet Hub and/or Plusnet Broadband Network are not enabled for IPv6.

Now it says:
Pinholes are small holes opened in a firewall to allow data from the Internet to reach devices on the protected network such as games consoles or servers. Your Plusnet Hub can be configured to open pinholes to specific IPv6 devices for use by games or applications. This serves a similar function to Port Forwarding.

IPv6 Pinholes are not currently enabled as your Plusnet Hub and/or Plusnet Broadband Network are not enabled for IPv6

Does anybody know when the hub manager was changed/updated?

Does this mean the trial has finished and they're getting ready to roll IPv6 out soon?

Was my saved data incorrect, thus I've got this wrong?

I don't use the Hub One but I remember seeing those exact settings in the HomeHub 5B during my (non IPv6) BT days. They were there for some time, appeared after a firmware update sometime in the last 2-3 years.
