in consequence of the missive, Is this quite supported by Darcy's reflections in Chapter 12?, penned by Kathleen Glancy
that he may not have enjoyed Miss Bingley's teasing at the end of Chapter 12, but in chapter 6 we haven't yet seen Caroline fawning over Darcy. I believe the "fine eyes" exchange is the first time we see these two interact. (We have heard that they danced together at the Assembly, but don't know what they may have talked about at that event.) So I think from his composure to Miss Bingley's teasing at that time, we can surmise that it did not annoy him. At this point in the novel, we have nothing else to go on.
It is also possible that by the end of chapter 12, Darcy is less happy about Miss Bingley being uncivil to Elizabeth, than he was about her teasing him about it.
