In that table it shows that gparted can only detect LVM groups, but it will not show the fs('s) inside it, nor can do it any other thing. You can think of it as a partition containing partitions, each of which can have a different format. So, on a single LVM volume group you can have lots of different pieces with different formats.

It all is a bit confusing if you have no experience with it because it's not the typical setup you find in other OSes, but there are good manuals around. Once you understand the terminology LVM is much more clear, but that exceeds the purpose of this thread by far.
thanks for the info. I'm just wondering why I had the option of lvm or ext4 on the fedora install cd. But this is getting way off topic...
