These values are just not set for MSDOS part tables, because that old
stuff does not support it. That's how things work. We don't have any
ext3 specific uuid properties, just because iso9660 does not have
uuids. Also partition labels have zero in common with filesystem
labels, they never had and never will. All seems fine how it is.
