Is it possible to export LR collections including the subfolders in a complete folder structure?

It seems to me that if I select a Collection that contains photos from varied folders, when I 'Export as a Catalog' (with "negatives") I do get the folder structure with a parent "IMAGES" (but only for the photos in that Collection).
I do not see a need for the Plugin.. or am I wrong? Are you expecting something more comprehensive?
eg.
The 3 folders containing photos in one Collection-


The Exported Catalog (I called "Cat Test") containing the 'exported negatives'-

I think I have the same need, if I understand correctly.

I would like to export (to jpeg, for example) all the images in a Lightroom Collection Set (which have a hierarchy with  other collection sets and collections inside it), to a computer folder system (created automatically) that simulates the Collection Set hierarchy, independently of the folder system where the raw images are stored.

I think the answers before do not solve this problem, because what is preserved is the original folder hierarchy where the raw images are stored in the computer.

I can not find a way to do this. Is this possible?

How do I transform this question in an idea?

To export a hierarchy of collection sets and collections to an external folder hierarchy, see the Collection Publisher plugin. To export a hierarchy of LR folders to an external folder hierarchy, see the Folder Publisher plugin and the LR/Treeexporter plugin mentioned above.
