On a USPV with VVOLs associated to a Pool and utilized space within the Pool,  Do we need to reformat VVOLs prior to releasing them from the Pool and performing subsequent delete of the Pool ?

Recently after having need to delete a pool, all VVOLs were released from a Pool but the Pool continued to have utilized space even though no VVOLs were associated to the Pool.  Does the 'Release VVOL from Pool' not write zero data to utilized pages ?

Many Thanks
