Any ideas why the update to the block exemption doesn't seem to be working?

That is because address 2600:3c01::f03c:93ff:fe24:db1b is inside a global block applied to range 2600:3c01::/64, and there's no simple solution until T42439 is resolved... Anyway, please submit an unblock request (for your IPv6 address) at this page.
