I have gluster bricks ontop of thin LVM and when I resized my LV, everything went live and without issues.
As gluster is working ontop the File System, it relies on the information from it (in my case XFS).
Just make sure that bricks for replica volumes have the same size (verify with 'df /brick/path').

Best Regards,
