Does Google value adding a thumbnail image to a blog post ?

I don't know where will this image be shown exactly on your site, but if it is on the post page, it should increase your on-page SEO for that post. So yes. Make sure it has an alt attribute with a short description.

Blog Thumbnail is also important because it shows the icon of the website.

Mostly thumbnail image of blog post is the image which is shown for a particular post. On this image, we can provide an attractive topic name of the post enhancing user experience and which will make user to click on it.
If this thumbnail image alt attribute is not given, search engines would not consider it for indexing. Sometimes people search the same blog topic through image search results. Your image will not show there and hence no traffic.

Wrapping up, yes Google gives value to these images. It enhances user experience. And also you will come to know that these images can also drive traffic to your blog post from google image search result.

Is there any Google official resource that talks about it ? I tried a lot on Google for a genuine resource that talks about blog thumbnail.

A thumbnail is different for OpenGraph, right ?
