I can't explain why it's not working, but I do see a few odd things.

1. Where does /etc/resolv.conf point on your host?

I note that "nslookup" and "dig" will send to the local *resolver* by 
default.  This shouldn't work for testing an authoritative server, 
unless you have actually configured delegation for your IPv6 block 
(which you haven't). I don't understand how you got it to work for v4 

In any case, better to send your requests explicitly to the right place:

dig @x.x.x.x -x 2804:2b6c::2

where x.x.x.x is the IP address where powerdns authoritative is 
running.  (Note that your /etc/resolv.conf should *not* point to this 
address; it should point to a recursor)

2. What are all those NULL records? I think you need to delete them.

3. I can't copy-paste it, but the record with ID 154 is completely 
broken: it's ip6.arpa under ip6.arpa.
