Bottom line, there is no valid reason for an ISP to keep changing
IPv6 prefixes.
Except what Koenraad wrote - they want to continue to ask a fee for
static addresses, so making sure the prefix changes on every new
connection will perhaps push customers with such needs to pay the
extra fee.

Then it's time to find a new ISP and let the old one know why he's
leaving. This is predatory behaviour, in that they're deliberately
harming a customer, in order to squeeze more out of them.

They're not harming anyone. They're almost certainly delivering exactly
the service the customer is paying for.
I am sure they are operating according to their T&Cs - nobody dishing
dynamic addresses will give a guarantee that it remains the same over
any period of time. That it might happen anyway is pure luck, but if a
customer relies on what was not promised ....
