All of those devices have to do with the IPv6 network protocol and your network adapter. I don't know for sure, but it could be that if you are not using IPv6 (possibly because your router or ISP do not) then Windows may see them as connected but not working. As long as the networking adapter is working as it should (for standard IPv4 internet connectivity) then I think you can just ignore these.
This is one of the reasons that many devices are hidden in Device Manager.

I don't know if I would uninstall them. Just ignore them. Are they causing a problem?

That is the question!

I would not uninstall them yet either. Instead, you might look to disable them and see if anything breaks. Or look in your BIOS Setup Menu to see if you can disable the devices.

But if everything else is working fine, then they are not causing any harm.

Did you reboot and see if they remain?
