For me, it is the next hop destination. Note, however that if SG is
also a router, there will be two cases for incoming packet with
routing header:

a) ip dst = routers own address => process routing header, IPSEC will
apply to next hop. (which may be the router itself again). 

b) ip dst != routers own address, routing header is NOT processed,
next hop is searched based on the ip dst address. Again, IPSEC apply
to next hop.

This is as it should be. Do not mess with it!
