    The software modifies the conveyor belt in the model. If you modified the belt carry-side segment, the software moves the carry-side components towards the tail-end to maintain the distance. If you modified the belt return side, the software moves the return-side components towards the head-end to maintain the distance.

If you want to extend a tail-end or head-end without altering the associated belt components position, use the Modify Components Relation Command to change the placement direction relation.
