Thick provisoned LUNs inside thin provisoned volumes?

Hello All!

 

I've took over a FAS6280 and I'm trying to get a better understanding on how space is calculated using the following structure.

 

The engineer before me create all of his LUNs leveraging thick provisioning and then he put them in a volume that's thin provisioned. Where I'm getting confused is if I look at the volume's utilization it's showing as your would expect, i.e., the LUNs full thick provisoned size; however, if I look at the actual aggr utilization it doesn't show this space as being accounted for? Why is this?  

 

TIA!

 

MY second question is when you flip between thin vs thick provisioning is the space immediately returned?
