[Gluster-users] Why does glusterfs has nfs stuff on the server

When I installed gluster and do a "ps" on the process I see:

/usr/sbin/glusterfs -f /etc/glusterd/nfs/nfs-server.vol -p
/etc/glusterd/nfs/run/nfs.pid -l /var/log/glusterfs/nfs.log"

My question is why did glusterfs use nfs-server.vol, nfs.pid and
nfs.log instead of using some generic name. This is confusing and
makes me think it's using nfs somehow on the server even though that
doesn't look like it.

We use direct attached storage, not NFS. This seems to come with
default installation of gluster. Is this just a mistake in how scripts
were named or is there more to it?
