Determine creator of a docker volume?

gs flag

I have a lot of volumes in Docker that don't have an owner anymore. I'm really curious who keeps creating them, but I cannot figure it out. The volumes are empty inside, so I cannot determine it from their content.

And when I run docker volume inspect I get something like this:

        "CreatedAt": "2022-05-17T02:56:30+02:00",
        "Driver": "local",
        "Labels": null,
        "Mountpoint": "/mnt/storage/docker/volumes/4db244d1741392b730eb4de50ce492ba2b19973aaef51bc5eaa41b4739c246e9/_data",
        "Name": "4db244d1741392b730eb4de50ce492ba2b19973aaef51bc5eaa41b4739c246e9",
        "Options": null,
        "Scope": "local"

It seems really weird to me that Docker doesn't even record the name of the creator, so am I missing something? How do I track down the previous owner?

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
