The file system idea of own size is possible to change and avoid space waste

partition boundary. As file system driver is part of the kernel, it can happen
that it can write over next partition on the disk and spoil the joy.

When a partition is specified as source or destination, it will not overwrite past the end. It may try, but the kernel will not allow it. I don't remember the exact message it gives at that point.
