We have more information about the NETLIFY and NETLIFYv6 type DNS records here:
Last reviewed by Netlify Support - August, 2023
The DNS record types of NETLIFY and NETLIFYv6 are special “alias” records within Netlify DNS. They will return the IP addresses for the closest CDN nodes based on the IP address of the system making the DNS lookup.

Please read that support guide above for an in-depth explanation of how these records behave with our service. The three key points there are summarized as:
These records are locked by default and can be unlocked by our support team.
These records only connect domain names to IP addresses.
These records do not control which site the domain name is linked to (if any).
I unlocked all the records for the
knapstad.dev custom domain. You can delete any NETLIFY/NETLIFYv6 records which will then allow you to create the A and AAAA type records.
If there are other questions or concerns, please let us know.
