Does anybody know what "creating it" mean in this regard?

I assume you are using vmrun.sh to start the virtual machine.

If the backing file for the virtio disk device does not exist then the
script will create it before launching the virtual machine.

See 'make_and_check_diskdev()' function in vmrun.sh.

Oh thanks, didn't notice it was the script!
