Seems also a misread to me.
I clear it (my worry) here:
If we set the node size to 0 here, it may hidden more things than we experted.
All the init chunks around with the size (spanned/present/managed...) will
be non-sense, and the user/caller will not get a summary of the hot added node
because of the changes here.
I am not sure the worry is necessary, please correct me if I missing something.

Regards,
Gu
