The only time you need to perform extra steps is when you want to run
DHCPv6.  You need to enable the M and/or O flags and turn off the
'autonomous' flag (if you don't want a host to get both SLAAC addresses
and DHCPv6 addresses.

That's a configuration of RA, not DHCPv6.

Then you need to turn on relaying unless you are
putting the DHCPv6 server on the same wire.

As I wrote:

Just as most, if not all, NAT boxes have preconfigured DHCPv4
service to offer part of preconfigured private address
space, home IPv6 routers may have preconfigured DHCPv6
service to offer part of configured public address space.

local DHCPv6 server should be running locally by default.
