You are correct.... Years ago I was asked by my supervisor to help him hire someone. We decided to NOT allow anyone to get hired just because of the certification. We based all of our decisions on experience and answers to "common sense". Most if not all of the people that had a certification or two, and had little or no experience, did not make it.
I might be opening a can of worms here, but we found out, as did many other people in the industry, that people that paid schools to obtain a certificate, were only "thought" enough to pass the certification test. Result: Schools got their money, Students got their "certificate", we got applicants with a nice peace of paper, but no usable knowledge.
