Is it normal for lxd images to be stored in / instead of the zfs pool?

I’ve found 11GB of data on /var/snap/lxd/common/lxd/images
Shouldn’t the images be stored on the zfs lxdpool?
And if this is the normal behavior, how can I make LXD store images on the zfs pool?

Yes it is normal.

Please see my recent post on this topic and how to specify the downloaded images are stored on a custom volume:

As @stgraber explains here:

Images Default Storage

You can create a storage volume on one of your pools with lxc storage volume create and then assign that volume to hold the image files with:

lxc config set storage.images_volume POOLNAME/VOLUMENAME

Thank you for the clue @tomp
