DHCPD6 and classes

FYI, have you tried configuring the CMTS to relay to a different IPv6
address for each class?  You might be able to set up three DHCPv6 servers in
the meantime.

I know DHCPD6 does not support classes like dhcpd did but does anyone know
an equivalent for the v6 world? I work at a small cable MSO and require at
lease 3 "classes", CMs, MTAs and CPEs. Since all 3 require different DHCP
parameters. I haven't found anything online so I'm reaching out to you guys.
Any help would be appreciated!!

Here is what I need to match on, taken from tshark -V.
