This. All filesystems need to use a best fit algorithm to try and fill holes left over from deleted files. FCP creates and deletes lots of files. Over time, you get these small spaces that the OS can't fill efficiently. As the large hole at the end starts to get small, the OS is forced to use more of the tiny holes elsewhere in the filesystem.

Since your NAS is small, a simple solution would be to get another one just like it, and copy everything over. Then the new one won't be fragmented and you can wipe the old one. Just don't let them fill up. That's a recipe for fragmentation.
