mmm, this looks like it's caused by the IRRd !i command not returning
mp-filter ipv6 entries from route sets.  Unfortunately, if the whois server
doesn't support returning mp-filter objects, then there's not a whole lot
that irrtoolset can do to work around it.

What you're trying to do here works correctly on the RIPE whois server,
just not IRRd.

That's definitely a bug in IRRd.  Try the attached patch to irrd2.3.9 and
see if it helps.

If would help if you contacted the IRRd people and alerted them to these
