    This is a guess… :)

    TCP congestion algorithms like CUBIC rely on connections which are point to point. Therefore, the TCP congestion algorithm of an intermediary network node (your pfSense router or any other router/switch between the TCP connection's end-points) is a non-issue because they are simply relaying/forwarding the IP packets. The TCP congestion algorithm is only used when you are the creator or receiver of a TCP connection.

    Example: Your TCP connection is connecting from localhost to Google. You are not creating a TCP connection from localhost to pfSense, from pfSense to the next node, etc, etc, until you connect to Google.

    tl;dr - the TCP algo of your router is moot unless your router is the initiater of the TCP connection.
