Can a virus be installed on a usb to create a hidden partition that can’t be seen in gparted?:

Is it possible that a virus program writes itself onto a usb stick to somehow reformat the firmware of it, and install some kind of hidden device descriptor that gparted can’t see? I’m just trying to understand how sophisticated viruses can be these dats, and if it’s at that level
