Group Policy/Active Directory encryption only showing C-Drive recovery information in AD

I've implemented the Bitlocker Recovery group policy and tested it on an OU with a Dell laptop.
I can see that the C-Drive's encryption details have successfuly posted to Active Directory (I can view it in AD), however, the D-Drive (different volume but of the same disk), does not show up at all in the Active Directory's Bitlocker Recovery tab in Active Directory.

Does this not work with multiple volumes? Does it only work with the C-Drive/Windows boot volume/partition?

Really?
I guess I didn't think of that, because none of the recovery numbers in the text file that was saved for the C-Drive (through bitlocker) match the numbers in the one generated for the D-drive.

But it makes sense if it asks for password, I enter the C-Drive/system one, login and can access the D-drive.
