Why does my network status change after VPN connection?

  vpn, windows

When I boot my windows machine and it connects to expressvpn, the network status is displayed as Local Area Connection, but approximately 5 seconds later, the network status changes to my normal wifi connection.

Does this mean my connection isn’t being routed through my vpn? When I run expressvpn’s "ip address checker" my ip does seem to be the correct ip address assigned by expressvpn.
