CityJSON uses JSON Schemas to document and validate the data model, schemas should be seen as basically validating the syntax of a JSON document.

A CityJSON Extension is a JSON file that allows us to document how the core data model of CityJSON may be extended, and to validate CityJSON files containing new objects and/or attributes. This is conceptually akin to the Application Domain Extensions (ADEs) in CityGML; see Section 10.13 of the official CityGML documentation.

CitySON v2.0 Extension specifications

How to create an extension?

See the Extensions specifications for v2.0.0 for an overview of how the file should be structured.

This tutorial to create a noise extension guides you through the process, and explains how to validate the extension itself and datasets that uses the extension.

As a template/example, you can have a look at an Extension for CityJSON v2.0 having +GenericCityObect with a new semantic surface.
