Where have the 6000 series cars gone?

Since the summer shutdown, I've not seen/ridden a 6000 series train in Virginia expect once earlier this month.
So, where they did they go to? It appears Metro has moved them to Maryland on the Red Line. I don't know if any are on the Green Line.
This means Virginia is still stuck with the old 2000/3000 series cars while Maryland gets the newer 6000 series cars

They're all on RD, don't they rotate railcars from shop to shop throughout the year?
