Two kinds of forwarding can be configured on the server level - ForwardingSmtpAddress and ForwardingAddress.  You can learn the difference here - https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/timmcmic/2015/06/08/exchange-and-office-365-mail-forwarding-2/

Get-Mailbox <identity> | Select-Object ForwardingSmtpAddress,ForwardingAddress

What you state in your question cannot be correct. As the above link tells, ForwardingSMTPAddress is a SMTP address (just a string). What you describe as having seen however is the AD object, which is ForwardingAddress.
The former can be set by users, the latter only by an administrator.

I'll assume you mean ForwardingAddress, then you would have to get that from the AD object:
(get-ADUser (get-mailbox  -Identity [user]).ForwardingAddress.DistinguishedName -property EMailAddress).EmailAddress
