Can't that do snapshots like BtrFS, like ext4?
No, or not currently. Actually, XFS shares some devs and features
with btrfs.

I recall reading that XFS could do snapshots but required (a) not
to mount via uuid and (b) a "freeze" option. I also recall that
the freeze option became kernel sported and could even be used with
ext3, but I don't recall where I read that.

The name is the same, but the feature is distinctly different.

The purpose is to create a backup of the filesystem into a different
device. It is not a COW (copy on write).
