It's not. The Theme isn't using the_post_thumbnail() anywhere (and doesn't
add_theme_support() for them, either.

And it's using the custom field merely as a "featured image" - which is
*exactly* what the Post Thumbnail is called on the edit-post page.
Basically, it would be asking users, instead of using the functionality
they're used to seeing for featured images, adding them as a custom field
