Blink announces the address by seeing which address is used as a source
for routing on the default route (well, to be more precise, for getting
to port 56, UDP - we assume there's no specific route for this
address as is not used). This address is used in the Contact
SIP header and the SDP payload. The actual IP packet's source and
routing is determined by the operating system (this cannot be controlled
by Blink). This basically explains why your packets do go through the
VPN, but they use the IP address on the interface associated with your
default route. We use this simplistic process due to complications which
may arise otherwise.
