You can mount an entire tree of ZFS file systems in one operation.
You have to mount each individual subvolume separately with btrfs.
That is not true.
If you mount btrfs root tree (not sure if that's the right term). then
all subvolumes will be visible under that mount as well.
If you mount a subvolume that has a subvolume under it, the
sub-subvolume will be visible under that mount. For example:
$ sudo btrfs su li /
ID 371 top level 5 path subvol/lxc/precise
ID 372 top level 5 path subvol/lxc/precise/rootfs
If I mount subvolid=5, the root tree and all subvols will be visible.
If I mount subvolid=371, the content of subvolid 372 will be visible
under the directory "rootfs" under the mount point.
I'd change the statement to
You can mount a ZFS file systems without mounting its children. If you
mount a btrfs subvolume, you always see all children of that
