Don't incorrectly imply that downing the lo interface will remove the `lo` resolvconf record.

That's right. You can't set the local domain name on a Fritz!Box. Alas.

The Fritz!Box doesn't allow you to change the local domain name. It's always fritz.box.

comment Ubuntu: How to configure DNS servers in /etc/network/interfaces correctly for resolvconf?
If you still have this problem then please post your whole /etc/network/interfaces file and the output of /usr/share/resolvconf/dump-debug-info which is included in the resolvconf package in Ubuntu 15.04.

comment Ubuntu: How to configure DNS servers in /etc/network/interfaces correctly for resolvconf?
Hi. I just updated my answer to show the results when I use an IPv6 address instead of an IPv4 address as argument to the dns-nameservers option in /e/n/i. Executive summary: everything works as expected.

You wrote, "when resolvconf creates /etc/resolv.conf it simply ignores all the IPv6 DNS servers." What you are seeing is probably an effect of resolvconf truncating the nameserver list after the first loopback address. Look in resolvconf(8) for the section describing the environment variable "TRUNCATE_NAMESERVER_LIST_AFTER_LOOPBACK_ADDRESS".
