The lender owns the vehicle and is required to sell it at a public auction for as close to the market value as is possible. It is likely the judgment wage garnishment is a result of money still owed on the original loan amount plus fees that were not covered in the sale of the vehicle.

Is Nevada a title theory state or a lien theory state?

Nevada is a lien theory state. In "title theory" states, actual "legal title" to the property temporarily passes to a trustee to secure the debt. The borrower (grantor), retains possession rights and "equitable title" and has full use of the property for the mortgage term. When the loan is paid off, legal title is restored without the necessity of a reconveyance. In "lien theory" states, the lender (mortgagee) places a "lien" on the mortgaged real property while the borrower retains both "equitable" and "legal" title.
