Be aware, IPv6 is now in monerod nodes. How can I disable IPv6 in Monero v0.15? Is it enabled by default?

For security and privacy related reasons, I'd like to completely disable IPv6 (I'm sure many here also have reasons to disable it, at least until a full analysis with wireshark is done for their nodes).

I'm using monerod with monero-wallet-cli and some times monero-gui. I believe with these wallets it is not an issue (correct me if I'm wrong) because the node, monerod, is what determines the connection protocol

In monerod, the command line arguments seem to show the options:

--p2p-use-ipv6 --rpc-use-ipv6

It looks like ipv6 is not enabled by default, and these are flags are to enable them. Is that right? I'd like to confirm this before using the new software.
