single sided glazing tape in wooden doors?

I've just installed a set of wooden slide/fold doors. It's Bank Holiday so I can't call the manufacturers.

Installation guidelines for glazing call for glazing tape to be lubricated on the glass side so as to allow the glass to move. - I thought that glazing tape is normally double sided adhesive.

Is this method of sticking the tape only to the timber frame and NOT to the glass a normal method? - Is it perhaps because it's timber and subject to movement?

Is there such a thing as single side adhesive glazing tape?

No what they are saying is wet the glass side of the tape so when you push the glass onto it it gives you the ability to slide the glass around to cetralise it, the water will evapourate in a day and the adhesive will still be there and grip the glass, otherwise the glass sticks like **** to a blanket and if it goes in wonky then its a pain to unstick it.
