[linux-lvm] (simple question) Is it possible to specify a size to extend an LVM partition to ? rather than the amount to increase by?

-L, --size [+]LogicalVolumeSize[bBsSkKmMgGtTpPeE]
Extend or set the logical volume size in units of megabytes. A
size suffix of M for megabytes, G for gigabytes, T for ter‐
abytes, P for petabytes or E for exabytes is optional. With the
+ sign the value is added to the actual size of the logical vol‐
ume and without it, the value is taken as an absolute one.
