Can NEXUS 2232PP 10GE FABRIC EXTENDER be used for additional UCS Fabric Interconnect server ports?

I am needing extra server ports to my Cisco UCS 6248UP fabric interconnect. I already have the
expansion module but I need still more ports. The Cisco config limits doc notes

There is a limit of twenty FEX for each UCS domain. For example, you can either have ten 2232 FEX for each FI or a combination of ten chassis and ten FEX.
Does that refer to the 2232PP FEX in the second URL below? So long as I purchase the license would that allow me to add more chassis?


Watch Question

The number of 2232PPs you could add depends on the number of chassis you already have connected to the FIs - remember that each chassis has a FEX in it - a 2204, 2208. or 2304. You can't add chassis to a 2232PP FEX although you could connect C-class UXCS servers to it. You are also limited to 20 chassis and a maximum of 160 servers in total.
