11.3 VMware-Snapshots broken

Just started playing around with FreeNAS 11.3 and went to setup some VMware-shapshots. After setting the hostname of our vCenter server and applying credentials, we select our ZFS Filesystem and our Datastore. Now here's where things get odd. When the task kicks off, it snapshots all the vms on that datastore but also datastore with similar names. So if we have a datastore named datastore0 and a second datastore named datastore01 and a third named datastore02, by setting up the task to snapshot datastore0 we are seeing datastore01 and datastore02 have their vms snapshot as well.

It also doesn't appear to be remove any of the vm snapshots once ZFS takes its snapshot.
