I have also noticed once the same thing. I don't think turning off the phone and starting it again will take away 6% battery but rather I think the battery stats were probably wrong and showed 100% charge while the true measurement was around 94%.
I think it is done intentionally so that the battery doesn't degrade easily in future.

As said above leave the phone for charging for more than 30 min after 100%, you will see increase in battery life dunno how it affects the battery cycles in future.

thanks for any help


Usually until and unless you cut the data connection off before your turn off your Nexus few of your apps reboots automatically which eats up the battery a little . I hope this helps.
