Because your mounting under a different location (via a symlink), when 
ZFS mounts the volumes it doesn't spot that there is a dependency there.

This results in /usr being mounted after the volume under /home which is 
a symlink to /usr/home hence the volume /usr shadows / hides the one 
mounted under /usr/home which was mounted first.
