empty child dataset even if i use recursive on the parent snapshot's dataset

i have parent dataset called parent.
And 2 child ie: parent/child1 and parent/child2
Those 2 childs have restrictive permission (owner's user and group child1:child1 for child1 and child2:child2 for child2)
I've created a snapshot on parent with recursive (so it should take a snap of child1 and child2).

The snapshot is successful. If i clone it and do an ls on it, child1 and child2 are empty. Only files under parent shows.

Can the privilege cause an issue for those childs or maybe i'm missing something else.
