Push DNS server via SLAAC (or DHCPv6)

Question

I use Pi-hole on my home network to block ads. All I had to do with IPv4 was set the DHCP server in my Keenetic device.

I recently switched my ISP and they provide IPv6 connectivity. I managed to have IPv6 working, but now the router pushes via SLAAC its IPv6 address as DNS server to clients. So now my devices prefer IPv6 and reach to the router for DNS resolution, bypassing the Pi-hole on my home network.

I tried to find an option to change the DNS server address pushed via SLAAC but couldn't find one. I saw that I can change SLAAC to DHCPv6 but I can't find where to set the options.

Is it possible to change the DNS server pushed to IPv6 clients?

This is not possible now. The router always advertises its DNS proxy address(link-local address of LAN).

Then it's not possible to have a DNS server in the LAN at the moment, when dual-stack is present 😞. As far as I know clients will prefer IPv6 and bypass the DNS server on the LAN.

Should I open a thread in the feature request section?
