This is how glabel works - if anything within a provider recognizes it 
as its own (e.g. a file system), the whole provider is labeled for it.

Or are you thinking about something else? If you first did gmirror, then 
gpt, then newfs, the UFS label should be created with the same data as 
the gpt partition, not the "whole disk".
