See my answer here:

Copied here for the list:

Caveat: did you mount the volume directly with the quota options? I
know for sure that xfs doesn't support enabling quota (and many other
options) through "remount", though mount lists the options as enabled.
Here comes a non working example:

# mount -t xfs /dev/dm-0 /mnt/test
# mount
/dev/dm-0 on /mnt/test type xfs (rw)
# mount -o remount,pquota /mnt/test
# mount
/dev/dm-0 on /mnt/test type xfs (rw,pquota)

mount lists the mountpoint as quota enabled, but quotas won't actually
work. You must umount then mount.
