Drive increase in RN428 RAID6

I have an 8 bay NAS that has 8 8TB drives (dual redundancy).   I want to start replacing them with higher capacity drives.  Normally with RAID 5 once I put two larger drives in, I start to see higher capactity.  Is that the same case for RAID 6?

No, you'll see the increase after you insert the 4th larger drive.
