RWG Mobile connection showing as IWLAN when WiFi switched on

I recently obtained a RWG sim card based on the chat on this forum. When I run an app called Network Cell Info Lite my connection is shown as "IWLAN Now" but if I turn my WiFi connection off this changes to "LTE Now".

I haven't explored this further but Google shows it is a method of transferring IP data via Wifi. I was under the impression that RWG hadn't yet implemented the more advanced modes such as VoLTE or Calls over WiFi.

Does anyone else see this on their mobile?  My phone is a fairly cheap Xiomi Mi 11 Lite 5G NG.

Just curious.
