According to what I've read, that's exactly what DNS64 does. It converts A
records to AAAA records. (For mixed networks, it just passes through AAAA
records, but that's not in my configuration):
"DNS64 is a mechanism for synthesizing AAAA resource records (RRs) from A
RRs." - https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc6147
"DNS64 describes a DNS server that when asked for a domain's AAAA records,
but only finds A records, synthesizes the AAAA records from the A records."

Nope-- DNS requests aren't going to convert an A record to a AAAA record.
Normally, IPv6 only machines should request IPv6 AAAA records by
preference, and fall back to IPv4 A records only when IPv6 isn't
available. However, your IPv6-only machine will route IPv4 traffic using
6-in-4 or NAT64 addressing, otherwise you'd get broken connectivity to
