Filters and extension tubes don't increase "magnification" - they just reduce the minimum focus distance. 2 macro lenses of the same focal length might have different minimum focus distances, so the subject will fill different amounts of the frame.

They certainly do increase magnification. Using either a close-up lens, an extension tube or a bellows will give a bigger image of the object on the sensor. You will probably need to re-focus.

The image on the sensor doesn't get bigger unless you move closer.
