If you look at how TProcess parses command line into parameters
(fcl-process/src/unix/process.inc CommandToList) you see that it
doesn't support escaping with backslash (inside or outside double
quotes). Your command is parsed as (using FPC 2.5.1):

1: bash
2: -c
3: "ifconfig | grep -E -e \"inet6?
4: addr:\" | grep -v -E -e\"(|::1|Scope:Link)\" | sed
