I beg to differ:
   zroot/usr           /usr                no  4.17T   140K  1.09x       lz4

REFER is 140K - that's almost nothing compared to what you're "missing".

define "no change" - from what you showed previously, there must have been
a change because /home was a link to /usr/home ... maybe zfs list output
won't change, but I'd expect the output of "ls -las" for /home/storage to
show something different from /usr/home/storage now ...

*Hmm...# zfs mount zroot/usrcannot mount 'zroot/usr': 'canmount' property
is set to 'off'*

you can change that property, but it's probably not worth the effort (see
what I wrote above).
