https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Voice_over_LTE , there should be links to 
the 3GPP specifications.

I have not heard of VoLTE using IPSEC, that's not how it was supposed to 
work at least when I looked into this 5 years ago. Instead it should have 
additional bearer on mobile interface to handle this traffic.

How are you identifying this as IPSEC tunnels? What kind of device is it 
you're looking at?
