According to How Sink works in the ArcGIS Desktop 10.3 documentation:
Naturally occurring sinks in elevation data with a cell size of 10 meters or larger are rare (Mark 1988), except in glacial or karst areas, and generally can be considered errors. (source)
Lakes, ponds, valleys, volcanoes are all naturally occurring "sinks". In fact, any non-monotonic topography has "sinks".
So why are sinks in DEM considered an error?
