Does xfs_growfs depend on some space left on the file system in order to be able to grow it?

I have a colleague who ran into an issue where a file system resize failed. The file system is 100% full.

Aside from analyzing what happened in his case, should XFS be able to grow a file system that is 100% full?

The device has already been expanded, it is the XFS file system that fails to resize. I just wonder if that is by design, or whether it is an issue.
