Sorry, it is indeed preallocated. Other still holds: hole-punch doesn't fail
because the file already consists of only hole. Such file I would call a
preallocated data-sparse. In opposite to the usual not preallocated
space-sparse with truncate:

$ truncate -s 1048576 test-sparse

$ ls -ls test-sparse
0 -rw-r--r-- 1 andrey andrey 1048576 Oct  9 15:34 test-sparse

$ /usr/sbin/filefrag -v test-sparse
Filesystem type is: ef53
File size of test-sparse is 1048576 (256 blocks of 4096 bytes)
test-sparse: 0 extents found
