if you are staying 6 nights, but get 2 day passes to qualify for free dining, do you only get 2 days worth of free dining or do you get the entire 6 nights worth?

You get free dining for the length of your stay. The number of park day tickets you buy is unrelated as long as you buy the 2 days which are required.

Interesting.

So depending on length of stay it could be worth it. I will have to do the math

We really found this is cost effective. With the dining plan desserts and beverages are included. We mostly drink water (that we bring) and don't eat all the desserts. The room discount with Tables in Wonderland works better for us. Also, in the beginning years of free dining, the regular dining plan was included with values plus only a 1 day pass requirement per person. With the 2 day, yes, I know they can be held unused (at least currently, who knows how things may change, you used to be able to purchased any ticket and upgrade to an AP so long as within 1 yr of first use - that was great) but it is still a big outlay of cash to receive something you won't need for a long time, maybe never to receive FD.

you receive FD for length of stay-based on number of nights. You don't even have to use those ticket during the stay, but you do have to purchase them.
