Ping scan returning what looks like a PANGP MAC address

Hi - we're all working remotely now - so I've connected GlobalProtect to reach resources on our domain. I was a little confused when I ran a ping scan on a particular subnet and all the devices returned the same MAC address along with the IP address, 02:50:41:00:00:02. I did a bit of research and learned that the GlobalProtect virtual ethernet adapter has the MAC 02:50:41:00:00:01, so I thought I was getting a little understanding of what I'm seeing - but I guess I didn't expect this behavior, to see all devices returning the same MAC that's just one digit different than my PANGP adapter. It happened with devices on two different subnets. Should I expect that this is what I'll always get when I do ping scans over the VPN? I can get the info I'm looking for by looking at the ARP cache on the various switches, but was curious about this....
