Looks like you won't find any info for IPv6 there, because that's
exactly what '--source lease' is doing. Are you sure that your IPv6
address is not autoconfigured and it indeed is libvirt spawned dnsmasq
that's assigning the IPv6 address?

this is the xml:

# cat networks/ipv6.xml
OVERWRITTEN AND LOST. Changes to this xml configuration should be made using:
  virsh net-edit ipv6
or other application using the libvirt API.

  <forward mode='open'/>
  <bridge name='virbr1' stp='on' delay='0'/>
  <mac address='52:54:00:09:8e:66'/>
  <domain name='ipv6'/>
  <ip family='ipv6' address='2a02:xxx:xx:7::1' prefix='64'>
      <range start='2a02:xxx:xx:7::100' end='2a02:xxx:xx:7::1ff'/>

so it looks like a dhcp server to me ;-)

I just found out about virsh net-dhcp-leases and that one lists the leases:

# virsh net-dhcp-leases --network ipv6
 Expiry Time           MAC address         Protocol   IP address                Hostname          Client ID or DUID
 2023-03-22 16:35:44   52:54:00:0e:ee:da   ipv6       2a02:xxx:xx:7::1ba/64   WIN-C0HD8RH61MI   00:01:00:01:2b:a7:05:c5:52:54:00:0e:ee:da

For the '--source arp' case - libvirt reads the arp table (effectively
the same info is exposed under /proc/net/arp file) and finds a matching
entry there, based on the MAC address. Can you see whether there's a match?

No, that only entry right now there is my router:

]# cat /proc/net/arp
IP address       HW type     Flags       HW address            Mask     Device
xx.x.x.1         0x1         0x2         cafebabecafe     *        wifi0

And lastly - there's '--source agent' which is most likely to return
useful information, but that requires guest agent running inside.

Indeed, no agent running on the vm, could add it.

So is it safe to assume that libvirt (which is where you're reporting
the issue) is: libvirt-8.6.0-5.fc37 ?

yes: libvirt-8.6.0-5.fc37.x86_64


So dumping the net-dhcp-leases works also for me, it's just not consequent with the ipv4 behaviour, that's all.
