When calculating standard reaction enthalpy, entropy, and Gibbs free energy from formation values, why do the answers have units with /mol? Shouldn't /mol cancel out since you multiply by the coefficient in the calculation?

I believe that the reason why all of those values include the /mol is because they are the standard values which means they are specifically expressing the heat, disorder, energy, etc. for 1 mol of the substance or compound.
