Yes, but even if it knew it should use lofs, there is no way it can
express this using current semantics.
I believe the problem is that the zone looks like a separate system
so the automounter within the zone does not know to use lofs to
mount the filesystem from the global zone; it uses nfs instead.
And new semantics to allow that would have one twist: you really only
want to allow this zone-requested loopback when the filesystem to mount
is share(1M)'d to the zone. You can't allow zones to have arbitrary
loopback mounts created upon request. So this might need support for
share -F lofs and corresponding support to (auto)mount global zone lofs
exports in local zones.
