You have to find out which method is used and, if Sonicwall supports multiple
methods, which one you prefer for your Linux client.

There is no hidden virtual interface. Only if you use L2TP/IPsec there will
be a new ppp0 interface but it's not hidden. For the other two methods
packets are automatically encrypted if they are sent to the remote subnet.

You can perhaps manually assign a virtual IP address with e.g.
'leftsubnet=' in your client configuration but all three methods
are automatic so they might assign you a completely different virtual
IP address from the range.
