I have established an ipv6 tunnel using tunnel broker. Under tunnel details / Routed IPV6 prefixes I have an assigned /48 prefix. If this prefix is subnetted to /64 subnets and I assign the ipv6 addresses from a subnet to a network on the inside of my router, will the tunnel broker tunnel pass the traffic from the devices configured with the /64 subnet derived from the /48 subnet prefix assigned by the tunnel broker tunnel?

Sure, the entire /48 is routed to your side of the tunnel. Breaking it down into specifics doesn't change the fact that there is a static route upstream of your machine. Your machine breaking down the /48 into smaller subnets will act as the router and send traffic to the correct subnet.
