Question about English (US)

can I say sure thing only when someone asked for a permission or a favor?
how about when I was given a simple question?

1. wanna come with me? / sure thing!
2. Do you think I can pass the test? / sure thing!
3. will the shop give a refund for this dent? / sure thing!
4. Are you full now? / sure thing!

I was told that sure thing means "of course / certainly", but I've only seen it said concerning requests or premissions......(of course and certainly can be said outside of those two situations)

that's why I'm confused:(
