Default Why is my system partition that big?

I'm wondering why the system partition of my D802 (16gb version) is 2700mb big. Is it just me or is it normal? Did I do something wrong while flashing ROMs? currently running latest omnirom.

For comparison, the system partition of my old nexus 7 (2012 16 GB version), also running omni has only 649mb.

g2: 2724 mb system, 10640 mb rest
nexus 7: 649 mb system, 13720 mb rest

Because lg set it to that size. Their stock ROM is actually big when uncompressed, but /system is always large.
