DoF is mostly determined by distance.  Distance to subject vs. distance to background.

Want more DoF?  move subject closer and/or move away from background.  This is true for any size sensor.

You're absolutely correct that DOF can be altered by changing the distance between the focal plane and the subject.  But it is also determined by the aperture, focal length, sensor size, as well as distance to the subject, with each variable interacting with the others.
