Adding a 10mm or 16mm extension tube does increase the magnification a bit. It won't let you get much closer but it does reduce the "breathing" effect a bit.

See this thread - https://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/1708038/0#15648724 - I started on the same subject. It has some details you might find useful.

The Breathing subject - discussed and demonstrated:

It still doesn't really answer how to combat the breathing with the 200-600, because rarely, I get the chance to photograph wildlife within the 10 meter distance, without being able to take advantage of the tele to its extreme.
