If you're sending queries, you can expect fragmentation. -- not to
arbitrary nodes if you're using a caching DNS server, though.
Tunnels, as noted, are another eample.

You won't find much: many v6-enabled systems use v4 transport for dns.
-- and this one is not that easy to measure as the support for fh and
ext headers (you need to have access to interesting points in the network).
