    No, ip6_route_me_harder() only attaches a new route to the packet,
    the packets contents are not changed.

    No, what is happening is that radvd sends the packet with a specified
    ifindex using IPV6_PKTINFO. The mangle table notices that the mark
    changes and calls ip6_route_me_harder(), which performs a new route
    lookup without taking the specified oif into account. It therefore
    chooses the first of your two routes and sends the packet out eth1.
