If you want to add mkfs/create options, you can use --mkfsoptions= as
an option to the btrfs command in kickstart. If you want to adjust
mount options, you can set those using --fsoptions= on the btrfs.xx
members' partition commands.

With a graphical install, you might be able to start with a pre-
existing btrfs volume and get anaconda to create your root subvol
without any regard for the main volume's settings.
