No, you're wrong.
You're misinterpreting one the GPL terms that says that you're not
obligued to publish your changes if you're not going to redistribute
the modified program.
That means: If you change the code, you may use the software without
publishing the modifications *IF* you're going to keep the program for
yourself and nobody else.
But if you're going to give the modified program to someone else, you
have to give them the modified sources as well.
It has NOTHING to do with the license. The license for GPL licensed
work is and will be always GPL unless you're the only person who wrote
the original code and therefor you keep the right of re-licensing it to
whatever license you want.
But you can't relicense somebody else's code which is under the GPL.
