I mean having booted off memstick in my virtual machine when I do

# zpool import zroot -fR /tmp/mnt

the main root guts does not get mounted and I have to

# zfs mount zroot/ROOT/default

to get it. Whereas when I broke into the actual server I didn't have 
this issue. Clearly there is a difference and the main server seems to 
have been built mid 2014 but it too has a zroot/ROOT/default and I would 
like to understand the difference.
