Could it be the Sony typically sets the iso low to give the GN as defined in the manual? IOW a typical fill flash at short distance?

Sounds to me it's set to expose with as much ambient light as possible.

That is the problem.  With fill flash you don't want the maximum guide number...certainly not indoors.  You want something much less to brighten the subject and add a little catch light in the eyes.  A good flash system should not blow out the subject.
