nc6 doesn't handle UDP at all, for instance after receiving the first 
message (from another nc6 process as client):

$ nc6 -4lup 7000
nc6: connect failed on datagram socket: Address family not supported by 

The other netcat, nc 1.107-3 doesn't have the problem.

Both seem to handle IPv6 (untested, only looking at the parameters).
