SSL VPN client download being redirected

I have noticed that recently installed Fortigate 30E and 60E devices with SSL VPN configured are redirecting FortiClient downloads to when selecting either the MacOSx or Windows installer from the Fortigate SSL VPN web portal. This is a change from earlier behavior that downloaded the client directly from the firewall. The behavior is the same regardless of browser used or OS. I've also seen it behave in this manner in FortiOS 6.0.5 and 6.0.6, although it does not seem to occur in 6.2.0 versions.
I've confirmed the option to allow FortiClient download is enabled. No custom download location is specified of course, since I want the download to come from the firewall. The config is pretty basic, as seen below.
config vpn ssl settings
    set servercert "WC2020_pfx12"
    set idle-timeout 7200
    set tunnel-ip-pools "SSLVPN_TUNNEL_ADDR1"
    set tunnel-ipv6-pools "SSLVPN_TUNNEL_IPv6_ADDR1"
    set dns-server1
    set dns-server2
    set port 443
    set source-interface "wan1"
    set source-address "all"
    set source-address6 "all"
    set default-portal "tunnel-access"

config vpn ssl web portal
    edit "tunnel-access"
        set tunnel-mode enable
        set ipv6-tunnel-mode enable
        set save-password enable
        set ip-pools "SSLVPN_TUNNEL_ADDR1"
        set ipv6-pools "SSLVPN_TUNNEL_IPv6_ADDR1"
        config split-dns
            edit 1
                set domains "<removed>"
                set dns-server1
config firewall policy
    edit 4
        set name "SSL VPN Access"
        set uuid 48ef2084-fdad-51e9-b877-f079e3157c23
        set srcintf "ssl.root"
        set dstintf "internal"
        set srcaddr "SSLVPN_TUNNEL_ADDR1"
        set dstaddr "Office LAN"
        set action accept
        set schedule "always"
        set service "ALL"
        set groups "tacacs_group" "SSL VPN Users"
Have others experienced similar behavior? I have an open ticket going with support, but they have indicated they cannot reproduce the behavior in their lab environments. Any help the community might offer on this would be most appreciated. Thanks for taking the time to look.
