docker daemon failing to start when removing thinpool storage

Here is the docker daemon running on a VM that works:

-bash-4.2# ps -ef | grep dockerd root 2743 29698 0 20:18 pts/0 00:00:00 grep --color=auto dockerd root 24889 1 0 18:28 ? 00:00:07 /usr/bin/dockerd-current --add-runtime docker-runc=/usr/libexec/docker/docker-runc-current --default-runtime=docker-runc --authorization-plugin=rhel-push-plugin --exec-opt native.cgroupdriver=systemd --userland-proxy-path=/usr/libexec/docker/docker-proxy-current --selinux-enabled -H tcp://0.0.0.0:2375 -H unix:///var/run/docker.sock -g /products/docker/runtime --add-registry registry.access.redhat.com

docker daemon running VM that does NOT work:

$ ps -ef | grep dockerd root 16047 1 0 20:22 ? 00:00:00 /usr/bin/dockerd-current --add-runtime docker-runc=/usr/libexec/docker/docker-runc-current --default-runtime=docker-runc --authorization-plugin=rhel-push-plugin --exec-opt native.cgroupdriver=systemd --userland-proxy-path=/usr/libexec/docker/docker-proxy-current --selinux-enabled -H tcp://0.0.0.0:2375 -H unix:///var/run/docker.sock -g /products/docker/runtime --storage-driver devicemapper --storage-opt dm.fs=xfs --storage-opt dm.thinpooldev=/dev/mapper/systemvg-docker--pool --storage-opt dm.use_deferred_removal=true --add-registry registry.access.redhat.com

I have been trying to remove the --storage-driver, --storage-opt, etc to match the top process running.

Under /etc/sysconfig I have the following contents in docker-storage

$ cat docker-storage DOCKER_STORAGE_OPTIONS="--storage-driver devicemapper --storage-opt dm.fs=xfs --storage-opt dm.thinpooldev=/dev/mapper/systemvg-docker--pool --storage-opt dm.use_deferred_removal=true

I have tried making this DOCKER_STORAGE_OPTIONS="" but the daemon fails to start.

In /etc/sysconfig/docker, I have OPTIONS="--selinux-enabled -H tcp://0.0.0.0:2375 -H unix:///var/run/docker.sock -g /products/docker/runtime " to specifiy my daemon options.

Here is the failure when running systemctl status docker

I have removed all containers and images from my VM but the problem persists...
