https://pve.proxmox.com/wiki/Roadmap#Proxmox_VE_6.1 and the installed
packages suggest otherwise:

root at proxmox2-1:~# dpkg -l | grep ceph
ii  ceph-common                          14.2.6-pve1

I know Ceph does that. But I did have lost data in a PVE4 to PVE5
upgrade where Ceph was not yet upgraded and images got shrunk because
Ceph Hammer behaved differently from Ceph Luminous. I am wondering if
that is the case here too.
