If you mean the text representation (like the string
"2001:470:1f01:ffff::2b"), that's always in the same format when printed
by pfctl, as it comes from inet_ntop(3), plus the "/mask" part, which
can be 0-128 for IPv6.
The inet_ntop man page also contains a description of the formatting
rules (like how many digits, all-zero values, etc.), see the section
If you meant something else, please explain :)
