I'm not confused about mdadm vs. LVM mirror. I regret mentioning mdadm, since it seems to be confusing everyone. I should have only asked why the lvconvert command produced extents on the same physical device. At this point, I will just go ahead and test if
lvconvert -m0 /dev/VolGroup00/rootlv /dev/md1
will produce a functional linear volume on /dev/md2
