probably this is bug / misfeature in mod_rpaf / apache+mod_rpaf.
and obviously such behavior of apache+mod_rpaf is not nginx bug.

mod_rpaf change only client IP and not change client hostname
see details in fuction "change_remote_ip" in mod_rpaf sources

p.s. most probably this is mod_rpaf bug / misfeature.
may be try ask support in mod_rpaf/apache mail lists?
