Yes, pretty much. Of course, this is just my understanding of how
copyright of works is handled, and obviously IAMAL.

Since the code that is made with gr-modtool comes directly from GNU
Radio, it is 'our' code, so it's copyright FSF, not you. Any
modifications or additions you make to the code at that point is now
yours and therefore you can put your own copyright on it. Also, since
it's made with a GPLv3 tool and copies GPLv3 code, the resulting code
made with this tool is GLPv3, so the license notice in there is also
still appropriate.
