The client gets NAT'd when connecting out to the server.  The IP address
inside the PORT and other commands in the ftp session aren't getting NAT'd
and the RFC 1918 address leak out.  Yes, the outboud NAT config is:

map wm2 -> 0/32 proxy port ftp ftp/tcp
map wm2 -> 0/32 portmap tcp/udp 40000:60000
map wm2 -> 0/32
