Hopefully this isn't a stupid question. I have WFF set up and running on 5 servers and if works pretty well. We do not use ARR because we use Windows built-in NLB. The problem is every once and a while, one on the servers seems to fall over at IIS level.
The web farm controller detects this and marks the server as being offline so I was expecting the controller would remove the server from NLB, but this doesn't happen. From the documentation it seems that the Load balancing features are all based around ARR.
Am I missing something or being unreasonable in my expectations?

WFF does not natively remove a node from NLB. You are correct in that the Load Balancing features are based around ARR. You can write custom modules to interface with out load balancers but there isn't anything native to do that. There are some NLB cmdlets
for Powershell that you could use to automate the removal of the node:
