[IPv6] Is this native IPv6?

No, the 2002 prefix indicates a 6to4 address. 6to4 is arguably worse than not having IPv6 at all.

Because 6to4 relies on anycast routing, through equipment operated by arbitrary third parties. Its performance and reliability are unpredictable, and problems are difficult to debug.

A few years ago, there was an effort to de-prioritize 6to4 in the major OSes and browsers. You can see the results in the declining red line here:

The neutering of 6to4 was one of the changes that made World IPv6 Launch possible.

You've pretty much summed it up perfectly. I just wanted to throw in some statics of 6to4 brokenness.

As it was mentioned, 6to4 is anycast so the Comcast relays are only used for outbound traffic. Your inbound path/relays used will vary.

PM me your cable modem MAC address and I will check it for Native v6.
