Allow SMB service and iSCSI portals to bind IPv6 addresses in new UI
The UI only allows for selecting IPv4 addresses, but Samba should be capable of binding an IPv6 address too.
Editing the file by hand to add an IPv6 address/prefix to the "interfaces = " clause and restarting the service works.
As a workaround, it is currently possible to use "Auxiliary Parameters" to specify another "interfaces" line, which will shadow the UI generated one thus giving the needed behavior.
This can cause problems when Windows clients attempt to access hosts that resolve to both an IPv4 and an IPv6 address.

Testing with FreeNAS system updated to FreeNAS-11.2-MASTER-201809140904:
Go to Shell and set up an IPv6 address with ifconfig. Go to Services > SMB > CONFIGURE. Verify new IPv6 address is available under Bind IP Addresses. Select it and click SAVE. Turn service on - no errors or complaints at any step.
Go to Sharing > Block (iSCSI) > Portals > Add. Select IPv6 address from IP Address dropdown menu. Save new portal. No errors or issues seen.
