What 'they' sometimes say is that you might be on par with a couple of other candidates and the courtesy of the thank you email could nudge you forward.
I trained in the US. I have never written one. I can't remember if I was told to write one as a student or not. When I interview prospective hires, I very seldom get a thank-you note. When I do, it makes not one lick of difference in getting the position or not, and on occasion I am annoyed by it since the reason it's being sent is pretty transparent.
