Chord inversion aren't really chord inversions?

It seems to me that hookpad chord inversions aren’t true chord inversions.
Chords remains in root position with just the bass note changing,

When you invert a chord you take a note of the chord and make it a bass note

root position: root in the bass
1st inversion: 3rd in the bass
2nd inversion: 5th in the bass
3rd inversion: 7th in the bass

If however you have a simple triad or seventh chord and take the bottom note and move it to the top, you get the next inversion because the lowest note changes

So those are two ways to get inversions and hookpad uses the first one
