Question for Arvin - added to CC.

As long as you have not set a label the mount method cannot be

It's also unclear e.g. whether you *create* the volume before or
after you have set the default mount-by method.

Some people have the foresight to plan in advance of installation how they want their storage configured, and have it ready to go when installation begins.

I thought it perfectly clear by saying

for a freshly formatted target / partition with volume label

That means I did, and do, all partitioning, and filesystem creation, in advance of starting any operating system installer. I use one and only one partitioning tool for all my systems and disks. It's one never included in any Linux, Mac or Windows installer, but has binaries for DOS, Linux, Mac, OS/2 & Windows, which means there's never any partition table incompatibility among operating systems on my disks as long as no installer has done something unnecessary, unwanted and unauthorized.
