L2TP default gateway

I have a very simple setup. A pfsense router at the main office, with L2TP/IPsec enabled, and remote Windows 10 clients dialling in using the built-in Windows L2TP VPN connectoid.
For reasons I do not understand, even though it is a PPP-type connection, the Windows 10 PC does not receive an IP from the office LAN - instead it is from the subnet specified in the L2TP configuration. This is different from the L2TP/IPSec to a Draytek, where you DO receive a LAN address.
It works provided I leave the tick in 'use default gateway on remote network' in the VPN connectoid. If I remove this, I cannot ping or connect to any servers on the office LAN.
When I do an ipconfig, the L2TP VPN has no entry for default gateway.
Is this normal, or am I missing something? I want the VPN to connect, for users to be able to use office LAN servers, but their Internet traffic to go out via their Internet, not via pfSense.
Any advice would be appreciated.
