Difference Between ip6 and networksetup commands

I am trying to figure out what the differences between networking commands are.

Is there any difference between calling something like
ip6 -x interface
and something like
networksetup -setv6off networkservice
besides the fact that networksetup needs the networkservice name (e.g. Ethernet) and ip6 needs the interface name (e.g. en0)? Essentially -- do these commands do different things behind the scenes, and if so what do they do differently?
