[strongSwan] Does Strongswan work with an IP address not associated with an interface?

I am trying to use Strongswan with an interface which exists only in firewall rules (and the destination/source IP addresses of packets).  This hasn't been a problem in other situations but, when I attempt it with Strongswan, I don't see any traffic at all in a packet trace (and I have used the tcpdump information from the Strongswan documentation).
