[dm-crypt] dm-crypt overhead

I have a couple of questions regarding dm-crypt and overhead when using
different encryption algorithms.
Firstly, am I right that the aes-xts-plain64 algorithm has no overhead,
i.e. the size occupied at the target device is exactly the same as it would
be without the dm-crypt layer?
Secondly, when using aes-gcm, is the authentication tag created per-sector?
This means in this case there is an overhead per each sector (depending on
the tag size)?
Also I couldn't find how the IV is calculated in case of aes-gcm, can also
-plain64 be used?
Thanks in advance for clarifications.
