It appears based on what you are saying and my other research "ping" by itself does not work in Linux for V6 addresses. I can do anything I need with the "ping6" command in the V6 space. the MAN page is misleading for the -I switch or incomplete probably a better way to word it.
do you concure?
I do not think this has anything to do with a firewall. It more resembles a name resolution issue than anything based on the error shown above "ping: unknown host 3001:2234:1122:301:20c:29ff:fe41:a733".
