It sounds like your init script is ok if you can run 'service 
isc-dhcp-server6 start' manually, so I suspect you're missing the rc.d 
symlinks that are processed on boot.  You can probably use:

update-rc.d isc-dhcp-server6 defaults

to create them using the default run levels listed in the init script.
