Can somebody explain how XGBoost works with time series?

I am new to the Data Science field and saw a video of someone forecasting future energy consumption with XGBoost, which surprised me because I thought tree-based methods struggled with extrapolation ( constant values for out of range data).

I tried it myself and got constant values on my validation set. What am I doing wrong and what am I not understanding about XGBoost in the context of time series?
