When you prep a disc, you specify the partition types that you want, and
formatting tools may format the partition with the same file system
type, by default.  But you can format a partition with a different file
system type, and that won't change the description in the partition.  

Probably not a problem, but can surprise you if you reformat, and you
end up with a file system type that you didn't expect.
