Storage pool showing more full than sum of individual components?

I have a LVM-thin called "BigDisk" setup for Disk images and containers that is 3.57 TB. If I navigate to it in the GUI, it shows that I have used 2.24 TB (63.69% full). However, when I sum the size of all the disks/snapshots/other components listed, I only get 1.56 TB (1.47 TB in VM disks & 89 GB in CT Volumes), meaning it should only be roughly 44% full. There are ~700 GB unaccounted for. I've tried looking into it after reading the documentation and searching the forums but I'm struggling to figure it out. I recently deleted some backups and an unused disk that was 800GB so I'm wondering if it's related to that. I've attached screenshots of the GUI and output of relevant code I found browsing the forums below. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
