Where are common places IP addresses hide?

I'm looking to migrate my IPv4-based network to IPv6. But I keep hearing that IP addresses work their way into parts of a network infrastructure that we don't normally think of. So before I do a trial-and-error approach to testing the IPv6 network, what are there common places IP addresses hide so that I can have an idea where to look?

You probably won’t want to give up your public facing IPv4 addresses. If you do I’m not sure that users that are using IPv4 will be able to find you.

You should just need to add IPv6 IPs to your front end load balancers and routers and have them translate that into IPv4 on your inside network.

Some things which will have IPs if you did decide to change everything would include:
Desktops, laptops, wifi access points, switches, routers, printers, badge readers, door locks, VPN connectivity, etc.

You’ll need to know how having IPv6 only would affect people that have IPv4 only at home that will need to VPN into the office.
