??  Why is Martin so sure ??
Let's check:

java -Xlog:class+load=trace -version |& grep -Ew 'annotation|lang.Thread'
[0.010s][info ][class,load] java.lang.Thread source: jrt:/java.base
[0.010s][info ][class,load] java.lang.Thread$UncaughtExceptionHandler
source: jrt:/java.base
[0.012s][info ][class,load] java.lang.annotation.Annotation source:

So Stable does __not__ have to be class-loaded when Thread is class-loaded.
