Where does thymeleaf get the error messages from?

<div class="col s12 l8" th:classappend="${#fields.hasErrors('name')} ? 'error' : ''">
      <input type="text" th:field="*{name}" placeholder="Category Name"/>
      <div class="error-message" th:if="${#fields.hasErrors('name')}" th:errors="*{name}"></div>
</div>

th:errors is the text, but doesn't *{name} reference the name of the category? The name definitely isn't "size must be between 3 and 12"
