FILESTREAM allows to store any file (or better said unstructured data) outside the standard SQL Server database in the local file system. More info: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sql/relational-databases/blob/filestream-sql-server?view=sql-server-2017

FILESTREAM mirroring and several other features are not supported on SQL Server.
More info: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sql/relational-databases/blob/filestream-compatibility-with-other-sql-server-features?view=sql-server-2017

Your query
select * from information_schema.columns where data_type='VARBINARY'
does not show FILESTREAM filegroups but just varbinary columns used in your data tables.

Try this query:
USE YourDatabase
GO
SELECT * FROM sys.filegroups
