I take this as a sign that you have damaged your fs with that create-md.
You should not use this disk in production as is.

I'm not at all familiar with ext4, but this does seem very strange,
especially seeing as it can be mounted when giving the specific type.

I'd be grateful if someone could shed some additional light on this
phenomenon.
