Since the data is mirrored on all disks belonging to the RAID 1 array, the array can only be as big as the smallest disk. So you will be sacrificing drive space unless the NAS will allow a RAID 1 array on two 4TB Drives and a separate RAID 1 array for the 2 6TB Drives, which I'm not sure about.
*Update* It looks like it may be possible to add the two 6TB Dives as a separate RAID 1 array, however, I would research this a bit further. https://community.wd.com/t/ex4100-2-drives-raid-1-and-one-single-disk/101381
