Outgoing IPv6 Address

So I have a Hurricane Electric IPv6 tunnel set up and it's running great. I have a routed /48 which I have broken up and applied to my LAN interface, multiple VPN instances, etc. I can visit sites like ip6.me from a desktop inside my network and it recognizes the address.
If I visit that address from the pfSense box itself though (using curl), it returns the IP that I put in for "GIF tunnel local address", which is also the one that is assigned for my WAN6 interface. This IP isn't even in the same /48.
So my question is how do I change the IP that is actually assigned and used by pfSense? In IPv6 where there is no NAT, what even is the distinction between LAN and WAN? I tried making another gateway which didn't work. I can't manually set the IP of my WAN6 interface linked to the GIF tunnel. I also tried virtual IPs but it doesn't even let me create one because for some reason it thinks that there is no IP on the WAN6 interface.
Yes the IPv6 address on your tunnel interface would be the tunnel IPv6.. Why and the F would you care what it is or if its your /48 or not..
This is the transit network, this is how it would be on a routed IPv4 network as well..
There is no nat going on in the ipv6, the /48 is routed to you..
