ElasticSearch does not allow IPv6-mapped IPv4 address in field of type ip_range

Hi All,
I am trying to index the document with field having value as IPV6 mapped IPV4 address in the field with type as ip_range.
However ES throws following error:
CIDR notation is not allowed with IPv6-mapped IPv4 address [::ffff: as it introduces ambiguity as to whether the prefix length should be interpreted as a v4 prefix length or a v6 prefix length.
Could anybody please help with workaround to store this kind of address in field of type ip_range?
