Default 240 volt gfci breader puzzle

Working on a hot tub sub panel. Last guy had a 2 pole 40 amp gfci breaker, however when he wired the hot tub he wired with two hots and a ground, no neutral. Ground goes to the bar in the panel not the gfci breaker. Would this breaker actually provide gfci protection or just normal breaker protection?


So autocorrect got me and substitued breaker for breader. Smart phones are not terribly intelligent

Only question is my line side neutral on the breaker is tagged to the ground not the neutral bar, does that still work fine? (Line side is 6/2 uf
