Let $S$ be a numerical semigroup. Let $\mathbb N$ denote the monoid of non-negative integers under addition. Let $F(S)=\max (\mathbb N \setminus S)$ be the Froebenius number of $S$, $g(S)=|\mathbb N \setminus S|$, the gender of $S$ and let $m(S)=\min (S \setminus \{0\})$ be the multiplicity of $S$. If $m(S)=3$, then is it true that $S$ is the submonoid of $\mathbb N$ generated by $3, 3g(S)- F(S)$ and $3+F(S)$?

Yes, this is true and it follows immediately from

[1, Corollary 4] Two numerical semigroups with multiplicity three are equal if and only if they have the same Froebenius number and the same gender.

together with

[1, Lemma 6] Let $S$ be a numerical semigroup with multiplicity three, Frobenius number $F(S)$ and gender $G(S)$. Then $\frac{F(S) + 1}{2} \le G(S) < \frac{2F(S) + 3}{3}$.

and

[1, Theorem 7] Let $F$ be a positive integer greater than or equal to four that is not a multiple of three. Let $G$ be a positive integer such that $\frac{F + 1}{2} \le G < \frac{2F + 3}{3}$. Then $S = \langle 3, 3G − F, F + 3 \rangle$ is a numerical semigroup with multiplicity three, Frobenius number $F$ and gender $G$.
