"Automatic" looks to RA, and depending on how it's set, either does SLAAC,
DHCPv6, or both. (This is the way you're supposed to get information
from IPv6.)

"Addresses only" ignores DNS and other information (and allows you to
configure that statically).

"DHCP only" skips the RA and directly requests the info from DHCPv6.

This isn't Windows. Just reconnect the connection.
