When you format a disk a percentage of the disk is reserved for a map so your

On a UFS it is called the SUPER BLOCKS a master and at least one slave.
Typically these blocks will take up to 8% or there abouts of the disk.
BTW I am not shouting when "SUPER BLOCKS' that's how it's written.
In a root shell type fsck and watch the screen.
For more info dig into you docs usually /share/doc or usr/doc there where some
really good docs on the UFS
By default 8% of the disk is also reserved for use by the superuser:
this extra space isn't displayed in the "Avail" column of df, so when
the disk is really full (i.e the root user has filled the disk) it will
show negative values. The amount of space reserved can be changed using
