Best to just reserve something like a /56 then.  That would be:
2001:470:724d::/56, which is
2001:470:724d:0000:: through 2001:470:424d:00FF::
You would have 256 (8 bits of subnetting) /64 subnets reserved.

Then, you can do a /56 pool like this:

/ipv6 pool 
add name=lan prefix=2001:470:724d:100::/56 prefix=length=64

This pool is 256 subnets, with each being 64 bits long (/64)

Next, you add the server (like you did below):

This is correct.  With the corrected pool as shown above, your devices
that request dhcpv6-pd will obtain a /64 from the pool.  In the
Mikrotik, a route will be automatically generated for each assigned /64
from the pool.

Mikrotik (by default) turns on RA for IPs adding in the global routing
range.  No need to change the settings under the RA settings (Mikrotik
calls this neighbor discovery at IPv6->nd).  Some operating systems will
not like smaller than a /64 subnet, so that may be causing part of your
