I have a flex volume with the following options:
Volume State Status Options
BOSEQUCO01_Vol_2 online raid_dp, flex create_ucode=on,
It has 1200GB total, 453GB used according to a "df -g" run on the filer. This volume is exported as a LUN to a standalone Windows 2008 server and when I get properties on the drive, I see that it's only using 381GB. What's going on with the 72GB that the server doesn't see? Is this common behavior for LUNs? I had this same behavior the other day and ran a SnapDrive Space Reclaimer job and it was able to eliminate the "ghost" space. However, now when I run the reclaimer it says that there is no space to reclaim.

Most likely if this isn't a whitespace issue...it is a snapshot issue. What does a df -g show is the reserve over, and what are your LUN settings? Is the LUN guaranteed, thin provisioned? lun show -v should help get most of that.
