Anaconda requires a new subvolume for / but doesn't require a
reformat. The Custom UI shows the / mountpoint's reformat checkbox
grayed out and checked, which might give the impression that whole
partition will be reformatted. It's confusing but just a cosmetic UI

There is a way to do this with kickstart, btrfs --mkfsoptions
