Each /64 should be treated as an equivalent to 1 address in the IPv4 world, so
it seems to me that the original code was correct.

The code should not exist at all, if you have a fast server you need to waste so many IPs for Tor because it doesn't scale beyond one core and doesn't let you run more than two instances on one IP. And it is still unclear if this does help against any real world threats at all or if it actually harms because operaters don't want to waste IPs and won't give as much bandwith as they could without that limitations.
