I actually tend to doubt it. All of the people I've talked to from the major
operators have said that the charges in IPv4 were not a revenue source, they
were an effort to discourage the consumption of the addresses and/or the use
of static addresses and to try and recover the costs of dealing with them in
cases where customers were willing to pay.

Do you know to what charity they donate everything in excess of their costs?
