Are Thread Stacks Trimmed from Working Set?

    Thread stacks are incrementally grown as their needs expand,
    with new memory pages being commited as required. So
    thread stacks tend to grow in size to some largest level seen
    during their lifetime.

    If the largest stack size scenario is rarely seen, then possibly
    many of those memory pages will rarely be actually used.

    I know thread stack space can be paged in and out as
    correlated to thread activity.

    Is the thread stack memory also subject to trimming by the
    Working Set Manager such that those pages supporting
    the rarely used upper stack end are paged out, while the
    lower frequently used stack pages are paged in?
