7TB seems like too much for one partition imho.
Consider splitting it into the parts

That's silly. It's 2021; 7TB isn't particularly large and there's no value in breaking things into multiple partitions for no reason.

Maybe to have the ability to restore or reinstall the system without bothering /home?

I've never found that to be of much practical value. YMMV. Anyway, if you have reasons to partition, go for it--but partitioning because a filesystem is arbitrarily "too big" isn't a reason. (Especially since, in context, it's a logical volume so presumably the OP has already decided how to allocate space and if they wanted a separate home they could have just made a lv for it.)
