glibc needs to know if the system has global unicast addresses if it
receives AAAA records.

It's curious that net.ipv6.conf.all.disable_ipv6=1 makes the problem go
away. Even with that setting, the kernel seems to send two Netlink
responses. So either this is enough to narrow the window for the race
so that no longer triggers, or there is a genuine kernel issue with
supplying the requested IPv6 Netlink response.

No, that's on the DNS/UDP side, not in the Netlink code.
