No: that just means that ‘virtualized-operating-system’ adds a root file
system transparently, which is why we can afford not providing one in
OSes that are only meant to be used through ‘guix system vm’.

But ‘shepherd-graph’ doesn’t know about that: it takes your OS as is and
show you the info.

Hope that makes sense!
