That's weird, this doesn't happen to me if I restore a backup (iCloud or iTunes), and I use iCloud Photo Library. May need to do a Restore > Set Up As New.
Do you keep full size photos on your phone? Were all the photos already in iCloud? If yes to both, let it run and verify all photos are matching. It could take a few days to complete since the service is not fast. It works nicely and keeps all devices connected to the service in sync but large batches take forever. I would turn it back on and give it time. Go to collections (photos tab) in the photo app and scroll to the bottom and watch the progress indicator.
I could only take a guess. End of the day, if you want to use the service you will need to let it complete the sync process. I'm not 100% sure what its doing but assuming the photos on your phone are what you want in the cloud storage anyhow it should not hurt anything if it uploads again. (bandwidth aside)
I agree that the process definitely isn't very user friendly and could use some clarification.
From my experience, I feel like it would have downloaded them from iCloud and restored your settings. If you look in settings, there is a photo entry in backup but it's empty. They are sitting on the server and not in the backup file.
