the spec says "Write Through policy requires the ENTIRE block be
transferred to physical memory on a write operation."

But what about write back policy? doesnt it too require that an ENTIRE
block be transferred to physical memory on a write operation?

Yes, but that should happen when that block is evicted from the cache, not
on every write operation.
