It passes family APR_UNSPEC, i.e. APR_IPV6_ADDR_OK should only change which
addresses are returned first, not if they are returned at all. If
apr_sockaddr_info_get() doesn't return v6 addresses without APR_IPV6_ADDR_OK
that would be a bug in apr.

On the other hand, apr passes AI_ADDRCONFIG to getaddrinfo() in this case, so
glibc's rather broken algorithm for checking IPv6 support could also be at
fault (at least on Linux).
