I am guessing guided partitioning is used, not automatic. When using guided partitioning, the volume group is named Debian (otherwise vg_system), and a lv debian-edu-freespace is created to utilize all diskspace. The automatic partitioner deletes this freespace lv after installation, but not when using the guided partioner. That way you end ut with no free disk outside the lv's, but the freespace lv is not mounted, so you don't see it with df -h.
