From the documentation:

Note that in this documentation, referring to an IP address as an IPv4 address or an IPv6 address is a semantic property of the address, not just the length of the byte slice: a 16-byte slice can still be an IPv4 address.

In particular, you're seeing an IPv4 address embedded in an IPv6 address.

If you want a 4-byte representation, use the To4 method.

This is working as intended.
