Yes.

The XB6 has MoCA functions, so it should be there to isolate the MoCA abilities, ESPECIALLY if you have a Gateway/Bluesky system

Yeah, you really don't want MoCA escaping your home... IMHO

I actually had the problem of my computer getting an IP from my Gateway system when I was first setting it up, that was how I found out the XB6 had MoCA abilities. - Noticed the DNS IP was odd when investigating why the internet wasn't work - recognized it as one of the DNS IPs from the Gateway.

Yes, that could happen. Best to turn MoCA off on XB6 until you have a reason to need it.
