Yes, it does that even without quota plugin loaded, because the kernel
returns EDQUOT failures for syscalls. To get current quota usage and
quota warnings working, the quota-fs.c code would have to know about the
XFS directory quotas. You're welcome to write the code for it, but it's
a very low priority for me.

Usually people use virtual quotas (Maildir++, dict) for virtual users.
