The IPv6 thing is the problem (which seems semi fixed now).
Looks like it was the firewall then ..
No, because the FORWARD chain didn't have any drops or accepts, as stated in the first post. The config was missing something, which likely was the IPv6 routing I added before I went to bed. Anyway, if this is you leaving, thank you for your criticism. I will keep it in mind if and when sh*t hits the fan.

As a quick test, you might try without dropping root privileges ..

For example:
Sun Aug 5 09:52:13 2018 us=267119 xxx.yyy.118.252:53338 WARNING: Failed to stat CRL file, not (re)loading CRL.

Or change the ownership of the files ;) I don't want to run OpenVPN as root, I already run it on a non-SELinux system.

It all works now. I now use PREFIX:3::/64 from my PREFIX::/48 range. All I needed to do was to add a static route in my router for this PREFIX:3::/64 to my local-link address on my eth0 of my Raspberry Pi.
