The operating system that runs on the virtual machine decides what to do with the disk. If it wants a 30GB filesystem, that's what you get.

The df command reports filesystem sizes. Check out disk sizes and disk partitioning instead. For example fdisk -l, or lsblk. Your image may use LVM - in this case check the sizes of physical and logical volumes and volume groups.
