Please note that LVM isn't a filesystem.

You can think of LVM (Logic Volume Management) as a *container* easily
expandable across several different storage mediums.
ext4 and btrfs are in contrast *file systems* (being the latter more
advanced than the former) than can be used on top an LVM layout.

For the use case of a typical single user I agree that setting an LVM is
just redundant as its main feature is its expandability; btrfs + a swap
partition should be more than enough.
