I just had another look at the wiki and it seems I missed the word

Okay so that does help minimize it somewhat but I still do see

RTNETLINK answers: File exists
run-parts: /etc/network/if-pre-up.d/vlan: exit status 2

twice for each "inet6 static" declaration of eth0.3 and eth0.4

My current /etc/network/interfaces

allow-hotplug eth0
auto eth0
iface eth0 inet manual

# VLAN 2 - ISP
auto eth0.2
iface eth0.2 inet static
   post-up /etc/network/fwmark_rules

# VLAN 3 - VPN =
auto eth0.3
iface eth0.3 inet static

iface eth0.3 inet6 static
   address fde4:8dba:e21c:3::1
   netmask 64

auto eth0.4
iface eth0.4 inet static
   post-up /etc/network/route_LAN

iface eth0.4 inet6 static
   address fde4:8dba:e21c:4::1
   netmask 64

# External Interface to Modem
allow-hotplug eth1
auto eth1
iface eth1 inet static
   pre-up /sbin/ip link set eth1 up
   up ifup ppp0=service
   down ifdown ppp0=service
   post-down /sbin/ip link set eth1 up

# Link to ISP
iface service inet ppp
   provider service

I also noticed it doesn't seem possible in Alpine Linux with
(ifupdown- to specify CIDR notation ie and
then omit the netmask altogether. If you try to do that you get:

"ifup: don't have all variables for eth0/inet"

Yet their example for 0.7.53 has it included
