My guess is that your dhcp client running inside the VM set up the subnet mask as /128. Dhcpv6 doesn¹t provide prefix length, but the client system sometime adds the net mask based on the link type. Some of the dhcp clients use a script to configure the interface, and I think you can use /64 if your link is ethernet.
