Maximum Magnification On 55-250 Zoom

I just got this lens and was wondering where it gives maximum magnification (e.g. macro). From just playing around with it, it seems it's at the maximum tele end of the zoom range (i.e. 250mm). It's very hard to hold the lens steady at this point though.

I was wondering if there's any general rule about where you find maximum magnification on a zoom lens? Is it always at one end of the zoom range or the other or is this something that just varies by manufacturer or particular zoom lens.

Sorry for what is probably a pretty elementary question.
