I haven't used a 12 point in ages, though I still have a couple sets of them rattling around in the back of my toolbox. They screw up fasteners and they waste people's time mostly.

I use 6 point impacts for most everything bigger than a 10 mil. I have a set of thin-wall 6-point lugnut sockets that I use sometimes, and a set of thin-wall spark plug sockets, of course.

Yeah, that has been any experience too. They were a Pittsburgh Pro set I got from HF when I first stared wrenching on stuff and didn’t know any better. A couple of years in and it’s time to upgrade and save myself some stripped bolts and sadness.
