Does look pretty similar to mine. So what happens when you boot?
eth0 comes up with only and whatever single dynamic
IPv6 address and none of the extra ones of either v4 or v6?

Is NetworkManager installed? (I don't have that)

What happens if you do a very simple static configuration in
/etc/network/interfaces like:

auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

auto eth0
allow-hotplug eth0

iface eth0 inet static

iface eth0 inet6 static
    address 2a01:7e00::f03c:91ff:fe6e:8c84/64
    gateway fe80::1
    post-up ip addr add 2a01:7e00:e000:a4::1/64 dev $IFACE


(Using the post-up hook is not the best way, the way you have it
already is better, but just wondering what will happen)
