Not only are you correct but it's done with great imagination. One I remember, in particular, is the "Charmin" commercials - "Please don't squeeze the Charmin".

It was based upon the now softer rolls which were puffed up because some realized the technology to minutely wrinkle the paper would make the sheets stay further apart:   less paper in the same volume. This was actually continued to the point where a roll was something like 160 sheets (vs. the ever reliable Scotties rolls of 1000 sheets at the other end). It's no accident that, thanks to this technology, ordinary supermarkets sell wipes in packages of 20 rolls - for Charmin user's, about a weeks worth.

Now, of course, there's the new 'larger rolls' - fitting in exactly as you described.

My favorite TV ad was the one that held the wipes up to a candle and noted you could see through the competitor's sheets. A certain time of genius is involved and I admire it.
