Yes, but the region is set as soon as you exit isearch-mode, i.e., as  
soon as any other command is executed.
For instance, you can cut the match string with Command-X.

C-s C-s should not set the region at all, because it is an Emacs  
In 1.4, it was intended to set the region to the new match string;  
everything else was a bug.

Using C-SPC, you should be able to extend a region with C-s or Command- 
f/g/G, though.
