Just checked with the modern build - the hash size behaves normally in the task manager with 2048 MB. However, I don't have EGTBs.

Often when I set a hash size on a low value (2048 MB or 1024 MB), the memory used reported by the Taskmanager is very low (10 MB to 15 MB).
Does this persist when running e.g. analysis for a few seconds after changing the hash size? Or does the usage go up?
On Windows 10 Pro , do not use use Task Manager, use Resource Monitor ,a much better and more precise tool by Microsoft.

The proof of the pudding is to set hash to 2048 and run it single core to depth 30 ( go depth 30) shown below:
