This question is partly answered on the website here:
https://www.torproject.org/docs/faq#Proxychains

And a full answer is here:

There is no Tor config option for extra hops.
We already tell people not to modify the Tor source code.
A specific warning about extra hops isn't needed, and might be counter-productive.
