How to check if given thread holds a lock on given Object

Most of my life I never knew if such method existed, but it does. In Thread class we have a static holdsLock method which can be used to check if the current thread holds the lock of a given object or not

static Object obj = new Object();
	static Object obj2 = new Object();
	public static void main(String[] args) {
		func();
 
	}
	 private static void func() {
		 synchronized(obj){
			 System.out.println(Thread.holdsLock(obj));
			 System.out.println(Thread.holdsLock(obj2));
		 }
 
	}

It will print true false
