Why is “$1/\mathrm{Hz}$” unchanged while converting$\mathrm{V}^2/\mathrm{Hz}$ to $\mathrm{dB}/\mathrm{Hz}$?

When computing power spectral density via Fourier transform and Parseval's theorem, one gets units of $V^2/Hz$ (e.g. Wiki). As a popular next step, the following unit conversion is widely used: $V^2/...
