DNS Leak Test Shows Google - Configured Correctly

I have just switched my home network to NextDNS. when checking DNS Leak Tests, I am getting about 10 google servers return as well as the NextDNS. I have setup both IPV4 linked address as well as IPV6 addresses on my network. 

When I run test.nextdns.io it says I am connected and have a profile, and I can see IPV4 and IPV6 traffic return in my dashboard.

Is this normal? I understand that NextDNS host their servers with multiple providers, is Google Cloud one of them? Might explain why its returning in that way? Just confirming that there is nothing wrong with my setup or I haven't missed something. 

I have double checked the linked IPV4 address, I get a green tick in the console and it matches when I look at what my IP is. I have a custom IPV6 DNS which is the two NextDNS presented in the dashboard. Can see them come down to my IPV6 configuration on my machines.

    Especially Google devices enforce their own DNS.

  • I asked this same question a few days ago and was told that I didn't configure it properly. Currently trying to work it out as well. If you do find out what is going on let me know. There's multiple posts on here and reddit. Hopefully we gain some traction and answers :)
