Baking: how to know when dough is sufficiently kneaded

Self-tutoring about baking: the tutor mentions a question he hadn’t thought about.

I have heard and read that kneading dough takes around 8-10 minutes. I’ve always just done so.

Yet, is there a way to know when you’ve kneaded the dough enough? Apparently, yes: if the dough springs back up after you press it down, and it resists tearing by spreading thinner as you pull it apart, then it’s kneaded.
