The explanation is absolutely correct.  

To all programmers of CW for the uBITX.  You do NOT offset the transmitter by the sidetone frequency!  When you press the key, the uBITX must transmit exactly on the display frequency and the RECEIVER must be offset from that frequency by the value of the sidetone.  Watch the video that W2CTX posted the link to and it explains how it should work.

Found this video explaining CW Zero-beating.  So based on this explanation the following is illustrated

for 7.040.000:    Dial displays 07.040.000, you transmit on 07.040.000, and the receive is offset by the

sidetone value.

Of course this is based on the video being correct.
