Not completely sure why that is. I'm assuming that you let CCC do the NVME formatting for you automatically. Or did you use Disk Utility first to format APFS ? I tested out NVME in my Optiplex so long ago I don't remember exactly what I did then. It's actually now installed in my Win10 PC I use for work. I don't need those speeds in my Dell OptiMac for any reason.
I do know that it's best for any NVME drive or SSD to be using the APFS file system with Mojave as that is what APFS is designed for. Gives you the best performance and all the new features that make APFS more desirable than the ancient HFS+ file system. Maybe some other NVME owners that are booting with their drive as APFS can add some insights here. I can't take my NVME drive out of my work PC for testing in the OptiMac. It's the only NVME I own currently.
I ended up using Disk Utility to format it to APFS first as even after initializing the drive, CCC did not see the NVMe drive as a valid destination until formatting with Disk Utility.
I'm try and have CCC do the formatting and try it again tomorrow.
Thanks for confirming that it really should be APFS. Just need to get that checked off the list and then I can move on to WiFi and BT.
