Thermal Pad is needed or not?

How to tell whether a thermal pad is needed or not from seeing mosfet datasheet. I want to put an H bridge on a Heat Sink. so for Electrical isolation I need Thermal pads, but some of the switches don’t need because they have already insulated case and only thermal paste is fine. So how to tell?

Look at the pinout. If it's connected to something, it has to be the same as a pre-existing electrical connection and thus will be listed alongside all the other pins.
