Firewall state created against loopback when PPPoE down

My pfSense connects to my ISP with PPPoE. If the PPPoE goes down, outbound traffic traffic gets state created via the loopback interface. I have gateway monitoring on & 'flush all states when a gateway goes down'. The problem is that null4 becomes the 'default route', resulting in outbound traffic going to loopback & firewall state being created. My ATA keeps retrying, but because it's the same 'session' - it never times out from the firewall state - I need to manually delete the state created via loopback to get my ATA back online.
Is there a way to 'discard' traffic when there is no real default gateway? Or can I configure the firewall to not create state when traffic is going to null4?
