Setting IPv6 Static DNS

Enabled IPv6 on my r6700v2 (latest FW v1.2.0.24_1.0.1) and was attempting to set static DNS to Google's servers following the instructions at https://kb.netgear.com/24012/How-do-I-set-up-a-fixed-IPv6-Internet-connection-on-my-Nighthawk-router

 

I'm confused, though, because Google DNS are listed as 2001:4860:4860::8888 and 2001:4860:4860::8844, but the space to enter them is much longer?

Am I missing something here?

   Replace "::" by as many (colon-separated) zeros as needed.

   So, for example, "2001:4860:4860::8888" is equivalent to
"2001:4860:4860:0:0:0:0:8888".
