Growing Back tails...opinions

Most people seem to agree that Cresties cannot grow back their tails, however, I have two books The herpetofauna of New Caledonia by Aaron Bauer and Rhacodactylus by Henkel and Seipp; one of which says they can grow it back TO A POINT. This means that as long as the gecko maintains a certain amount of their original tail, they can regenerate it. The ones pictured that cannot grow theirs back have formed a small ball or nub at the end of their inguinal region. What are people's takes on this?
