VPN possible leak

I want to thank Nathan for his amazing course. You present the information clearly and completely. Your lectures are terrific!
I have a question:

DNS Leak over VPN perhaps?: Sometimes I will run a test and the DNS test shows a different IP but only the last two digits of the IP. For example my IP when using the VPN could be. 255.17.50.25 and the DNS test will show something like 255.17.50.10. Do I have a DNS leak or is it still on the VPN server? Im confused. Its not my ISP IP in any case. Its also not every time. Sometimes I will log onto to my VPN and the IP and DNS test IP are identical. TYIA:)

EDIT: I know see this in the leak test. “hosted-by.leaseweb.com” The IP leaked is in the same country as the VPN IP I am using though.

Thank you.

Do a DNS test when you are not on the VPN. Note the IP address of the DNS server.
Then do a test when you are on the VPN. The IP should be totally different to the ISP-assigned DNS IP.

But from what you have written it doesn’t sound like a leak.
