Also to help isolate the component, could you answer these:

1. on a different volume with shard not enabled, do you see this issue?
2. on a plain 3-way replicated volume (no arbiter), do you see this issue?

Also, what exactly do you mean by accessing the image directly from
outside? Was it from the brick directories directly? Was it from the mount
point of the volume? Could you elaborate? Which files exactly did you check?
