Yes, basically. There is a distinction that if an external is created
specifically for the Max/MSP SDK and does not use code from other GPL'ed
projects, then there is an (arguable) implicit exception. But you can't
(legally) take code from a third party GPL'ed project and use that
either directly or as a library in a Max/MSP external. This naturally
happens, but mostly because people aren't actually reading the license
that they're using.
