In FeatureScript, what determines whether separate 'parts' are created, vs a single one?

I have created multiple sketches, ,and I'm noticing behavior I do not understand.

Inside of the FS script, I create more than one sketch, and then convert them to solids.

When i use opThicken, each sketch region becomes another 'part' in the Part Studio.
However, when i use opExtrude, only a single part is created in the part studio.

In both cases, I use a single id for the operation. I expected that the creation of separate parts would be driven by whether the operation was the same-- but it is not.

What controls whether separate 'parts' will be created in the part studio when the FS is complete?  In this case, I prefer to use opThicken because it is more tolerant of overlaping sketch regions. But I would rather have a single part created, vs one per sketch region.

I  think the solution is probably pretty easy-- I simply do not understand how FS operations translate to "Parts" in the part studio.

Thanks in advance for the help!
