Interesting possibility though not in my case. I photographed an object in a scene some 25feet away using both the 18-70 and my 55-200 both set at 70mm on the same camera. The image from the 55-200 showed considerable enlargement over that of the 18-70.
At the 18mm end of the lens images compared to that of my 18-55 lens show more of the scene equating in my estimate to a 16 or 17mm focal length.
I hasten to add that I have no complaints about the quality of these images which implies there is no technical fault, just a false impression that the lens is not what it is supposed to be.
I have a wide angle zoom so shall see if I can verify my wide angle observations.
