em1 down in nm, yet it has an IPv6 address

Hi all,

Fedora 20 here. nm is (Old, I know)

Network Manager shows em1 "Wired" as being down. I have em1 configured as down. Yet, I notice the following:

# ip -6 r
default via fe80::<redacted> dev wlp2s0  proto static  metric 1024
default via fe80::<redacted> dev em1  proto ra  metric 1024  expires 597sec

# ifconfig em1
em1: flags=4163<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST>  mtu 1500
        inet6 fe80::<redacted>  prefixlen 64  scopeid 0x20<link>
        inet6 2001:<redacted>  prefixlen 64  scopeid 0x0<global>
        ether <redacted>  txqueuelen 1000  (Ethernet)
        RX packets 74900  bytes 5929479 (5.6 MiB)
        RX errors 0  dropped 862  overruns 0  frame 0
        TX packets 9  bytes 762 (762.0 B)
        TX errors 0  dropped 0 overruns 0  carrier 0  collisions 0
        device interrupt 20  memory 0xf7e00000-f7e20000 

Down means down, but only for IPv4.

I have noticed this for several months, and occasionally, it causes a problem with IPv6 connectivity.

Any pointers would be appreciated, before I disable IPv6 completely.
