Storage space reclamation is not triggered after discard is enabled.

I tried to use the discard feature of the virtual disk. I mapped a Huawei storage LUN to proxmox via FC link and added it as LVM-Thin storage. The discard option is selected when the VM disk is created. After the virtual disk is deleted,The proxmox page shows that the space of the LVM-Thin storage has been reclaimed. But the space is not reclaimed on the Huawei storage system.
Is this the way it is supposed to work?
