Understanding Thin Disk

If I understand in Vmware when creating VM with thin disk , the space is not allocated from the beginning, however it is still set up theoretically, for instance you set it up to 100 GB /Thin disk

What if ,for instance with windows OS, you can go and use disk Management you extend the volume to its maximum. Then at this stage it is still the same as creating VM with thick disk, because the space was not completely allocated through vmware but completely allocated from within windows disk management.

Any Expert to explain the confusion of Thin Disk ?

Thank you
