This is a different question than the one with the almost-identical title.
Again, this is more curiosity about how Oracle Database works than anything I need to change (yes I know multiple extents are fine, I read Tom Kyte too).
I have a table with the following characteristics:
Initial Ext: 1.44GB Next Ext: 1MB Num Extents: 26 Size: 4.18MB
In this case, I got the size by scanning 10% of the table rows. With an initial extent size so high, and the data so low, how did further extents get added? I am certain that the table did not become huge, then shrink drastically back down again.
