parted looks at _physical_ volumes only and a filesystem can only be
shown if the entire volume is in play.  Remember that a logical volume
is made of chunks of the volume group--and those chunks could be on
different physical volumes.  lvm stitches them together.  Since parted
doesn't talk to the LVM layer, it can't see the filesystem.

I hope that explains it.
