I just tested CS3, CS6, CC 2014, CC 2018, CC 2019 and PS 2020 21.2  in all of those version when the cursor  is over a layer's thumbnail Content or Mask add the modifier key Ctrl the cursor turns somewhat like that but its missing the little + Clicking  load the pixels the thumbnail is for as a selection.   If I add the modifier Shift key (Ctrl+Shift) the cursor remains the same without the little + I can not say I remember ever seeing this cursor.
