Correct.

Macro extension tubes are here to increase the distance between sensor and lens, so that lens could focus on objects that are closer.

There is formula:

1/FL = 1/A +1/B

where A and B are distances between optical centre of the lens and object and sensor.
If you work it out a bit, you will see how it works...
