So how many stops do you set for the bracketing? I use the default sequence 0, -, + and select the bracketing value using the Q button. However, I usually use 2/3 stop or 1 stop at the most. You must have set yours to 2 stops (or greater) for the SS to jump to 1/8000. That seems an awful lot. I do think it's wise to have the 0 first for your base exposure - then you know what SS you are dealing with on either side. My 5D4 is busy (doing astro) so I tested the 6D at 1/2500 sec with + and - 1 stop. It took the + image at 1/4000 (which is the max SS on the 6D) without complaining.
Yes, I did adjust the stops so that the SS wouldn't jump to as high as 1/8000. I think it now jumps to 1/4000 at fast end and 1/500 at slow end, I believe. I still don't know why, however, that particular "C" with the AEB programming gets erased randomly. Today, it's working fine, though.
