The partition type codes are specific to the MSDOS MBR partition table.
They are meaningless in other partitioning schemes.

It doesn't actually matter; the lvm2 tools have never checked the
partition code used (it's more-or-less "documentation" nowadays).

Reasonable enough but just create a standard partition on the GPT
labeled drive and use that.
