Will unmanaged switches continue to work with IPv6?

Will unmanaged switches continue to work with IPv6?  (No routing / DHCP / NAT, etcetera; just a switch).  My understanding is the the switch is routing Ethernet packets based on MAC addresses and it shouldn't care about the IP addressing.  Just thought I would get a confirmation from someone more knowledgeable.

Thanks.

Switches work at Layer 2, which as you have stated is MAC address based and thus should not be affected by the clients using either IPv4 or IPv6
