Yup. Air is excluded so microbes aren't sustained.

I thought it means microbes would die, but I just read in my book canning doesnt kill microbes?

Some microbes can respire anaerobically I suppose.
But the process in which they remove the air also removes the microbes in the air I suppose, so the population of bacteria is at a minimum.
