[v6] Beginner with fixed-address6

I am still having trouble to get this working. I still don't see ISC DHCP
providing options under host declaration.
Here is my configuration file

preferred-lifetime 2000;
default-lease-time 2000;

subnet6 fe80::/64 {
    range6 fc00:0000:4491:0200::25 fc00:0000:4491:0200::100;

host test-box {
    host-identifier option dhcp6.client-id
    option dhcp6.name-servers fc00:0:4491::18;

The whole file is that simple. My client is a device, and the client-id
exactly matches value displayed in wireshark.

I am also trying to debug this in the source code, I am yet to explore the
code base, can anyone give me pointers please.

Any help is greatly appreciated.
