That's correct. In your case all known VMs are running.

listDefinedDomains doesn't return a superset, it just returns the list
of known but non-running VMs, it doesn't return all known VMs. To get
the list of all known VMs you need to combine the lists returned by
listDomainsID and listDefinedDomains.
