Just wanted to give a full update on where I'm at. I dug further and tried following the guide but with no luck, IPv6 for devices is not working.

-WAN uses DHCP6.
-I switched my LAN interface to use a Track Interface (can only select Prefix 0).
-I created the WAN rule requested for All:547 -> All:546.

What I have noticed is the the dhcpcd service is not running. I sadly don't have the skill to troubleshoot this issue any further.

Would you be able to point me in the right direction of how I could troubleshoot this issue?
I would like to add that the OPNSense Firewall is behind another Gateway:
Rented Modem -> OPNSense -> Switch -> Device

No problem! Please report back since others may be interested in that info. I only have one Android tablet I could test with.
Screenshot is of my Pixel 5 being connected to the Wi-Fi network using DHCPv6.

I noticed I am currently only getting a IPv6 Address that is either for LAN or Loop Back.
Could this be a loopback address?

Your welcome, thank you for responding back.

I am mistaken, I tested connectivity on a non OPNSense router. I will be able to test IPv6 connectivity after I have configured my VLANs.

While reading through the IPv6 page, I noticed it's written that it's unclear if Android devices use IPv6. I wanted to confirm that IPv6 does work on my personal+work phone and tablet as I have IPv6 addresses.
