Doesn't this just show that the .gvfs directory inside your home is
mounted using FUSE?

It's what Gnome's file manager uses to talk to remote hosts with
e.g. sftp or sshfs.

I don't think you can tell what is going on underneath because it
isn't actually mounted; the "type" of FUSE is "gvfs-fuse-daemon",
the daemon itself handles the different filesystem details inside

If you directly mounted a remote directory using sshfs (which uses
FUSE), it would show in df and mount output. The difference here is

I think.
