You can write them either way; both are acceptable and the number-base
of the dotted-portion gets translated ( .234 does _not_ become :0234 ).

But that's ipv6 addresses given to exim, not how they are given to
the place you're coding.  I think you need to check, given that a
colon-to-dot translation has been done by the time it hits you.
I'd expect conversion to unabbreviated form to have been done too.
