Is that true? If so, that seems to conflict with the option of adding LME at or toward the end of the boil... ??
You can add sugar anytime before starting the chill-down process, but I'd say on balance it almost always makes more sense to add supplementary extract near the end so as not to muck around with hop utilization. And if you're adding hopped LME you probably don't want to boil off the more volatile characters of that, either...
