How does AF Adjustment work in K20D?

I have a question that I can't find an answer for. I probably haven't looked hard enough, but why do that when I can pick the brains of the forum members.

My question is my title. But I don't mean how do I use it, I mean how does it work? Is the sensor moved to accommodate the focus problem in the lens? Is there just a calculation adjustment in the camera's computer system? Also, does it affect infinity focus? Anyone who knows anything about the mechanics of it, I'd be thankful for your answers.

In terms of operating the camera, I do just have the mnemonic "+=more closer." (Of focus point)

The gramattical error's so I'll remember the words, not end up outguessing what the computer means.
