Close up filters and the K3 II

May not have thought this question through, but I haven't found any reference to guide me.

The K3 II supports automatic acquisition of focal length on lenses such as DA, DA L, D FA, FA J, FA, or F lenses .

Since the addition of a close up filter, effectively reduces the focal length of the lens, do I need to make a manual adjustment to reflect the change created by the close up filter?

I don't think it's possible to change the SR focal length if the camera can identify the lens. In any case, I don't think it would make much of a difference
