Importing notes with terminal app

Hi. I'm using the Joplin terminal app, version 2.4.1, on OSX Big Sur. I'm trying to import a group of notes that I exported individually using the terminal app. I create a notebook with joplin mkbook then call joplin use with the name of my new notebook, and then call joplin import for each of my notes.

The result is a new notebook for each individual note, while the notebook I created and used is empty. I thought the import action would apply to the notebook I'd chosen with the use command, but apparently not? Is this intentional or am I missing something?

The workaround would seem to be to create the notebook first and cp all the notes into it, then export and import the notebook, and then delete it? Seems unnecessary.
