Shouldn't devices tethered to a device using Wireguard share the same IP?

Hi Guys,

Can you tell me if this is working as it should?...

I have a phone with Wireguard on. I share the connection via tethering/hotspot. When I check the IP on the tethered device I don't see the same IP as my Wireguard endpoint. What I do see is an IP from the phone's mobile network, the one running Wireguard. 

Is this right? Does this mean that traffic from that tethered device not using the Wireguard connection? I'm confused.
