I guess not all of them. OTOH, not all of them might use AF_INET6 sockets for 
IPv4 connections (the two-sockets approach is always possible when using 
IPV6_V6ONLY socket option).

At least xinetd uses IPV6_ADDRFORM although that socket option is already 
deprecated again but still useful for such cases.

openbsd-inetd explicitely doesn't support IPv4-mapped addresses, configuration 
needs seperate IPv4 and IPv6 setup.

I didn't look at the other two.
