I wondered if you could show an example of how this works in a
macro... when I try, it just continues to insert 1.

To reproduce:
Create macro of: 
 C-u 1 C-x r n a
 C-x r i a
 C-x r + a

then walk down this column inserting the macro

str
str
str
str

By running the macro at the end of each line, I get:

str1
str1
str1
str1
