Yes, SERVER_ADDR is expected to contain http server address, not 
the address of fastcgi application.

Moreever, upstream's address (fastcgi application address in your 
case) isn't available when nginx creates request to upstream (as 
particular upstream server isn't selected yet, and even after 
selection it may change due to proxy_next_upstream). 

You should be able to find out fastcgi application's address in 
fastcgi application itself, it's just a matter of calling 
getpeername() on connection socket.  Not idea how to do it in php
