Flash and ISO interaction

I hardly ever use a flash but last night a very dark party required it, so I used the small flash that came with the XT2. Since I was also taking pictures without the flash I had set the max ISO to 6400 and I was very surprised to see today that those pictures taken with the flash still used the maximum ISO 6400 setting despite the flash. Speed and aperture were both set to automatic.

A second surprise was that despite the auto iso setting max sensitivity 6400 and min. shutter speed to 1/80 I still ended up with lots of images taken at speeds well below 1/80 despite using the flash.

Is this intentional behaviour? Is there perhaps something wrong with my settings?
