Gamma Confusion

When calibrating my wide-gamut BenQ monitor using "Palette Master Elements" I have the option of choosing a value for Gamma. Using the generally recommended Gamma = 2.2 results good blacks, whites, and smooth gradient displays using standard monitor tests (i.e Lagom, Eizo); and, of greater importance, test images with excellent color.

When I try to measure Gamma with these test programs the result is closer to 1.4 than 2.2. Any apparent reason for the discrepancy?  Does it matter?  Would I be better off setting a calibration Gamma to another value, or to L* ?
