[PVE-User] LVM datastore weirdness

i have added an existing LVM Volume Group as a Datastore/Storage in Proxmox.

For my curiosity already existing logical volumes on that datastore are
not shown in proxmox webgui.

Furthermore, i cannot even see any properties of that storage, i.e.
"Show Configuration" button is greyed, so if there were multiple volume
groups, i could not even determine which datastore belongs to which
volume group.

When adding a vdisk to LVM datastore, it showed up in webgui - and i
could also see it with "lvdisplay" - but why don't existing logical
volumes show up ?

Should i consider this as "normal behaviour" ?
