Q: Most vehicles when changing the brakes you push the caliper in to fit back over on 2000 Volkswagen Beetle

the new pads, but on Beetle you turn clockwise w/special tool. Are there threads inside of these "clockwise calipers"?, and if so, how do they work with pressure?, because that's usually how calipers work.
