I use df.

Not that much better:

Real world example:

$ df
Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
rootfs 50395844 32372316 15463528 68% /
..
tmpfs 3057628 46748 3010880 2% /run
/dev/sda3 50395844 32372316 15463528 68% /
tmpfs 3057628 46748 3010880 2% /run
...

/dev/sdb8 638902480 153233668 453214376 26% /users/user2
/dev/sdb8 638902480 153233668 453214376 26% /users/user3
...

Hmmm. I wonder why /dev/sdb8 is mounted to 3 different places?

These are autofs-automounted local homes.

autofs mounts these home directories "on-demand", switching between
nfs-mounts and bind-mounts, depending on whether they are local or remote.

In this case, they currently are all local.

FWIW:

f14's mount displayed them this way:
# mount
..
/home/user1 on /users/user1 type none (rw,bind)
...

This reflects the actual situation and is human readable.



f16's "mount" displays them this way:
# mount
...
/dev/sdb8 on /users/user1 type ext4
(rw,relatime,seclabel,user_xattr,acl,barrier=1,data=ordered)
...

IMO, this unreadable and all wrong.
