You're quite right, of course, but I suppose they don't regard the
additional Heathrow station as an extension.

It's approx 2km, so rather more than just a new station.

Topographically it's almost identical to the Battersea Branch (~3.5km)
but maybe the writer thought it was like T4?

As I said, Basil is quite right, but I can understand how MR made the
mistake. I suspect they just didn't think about it.
