is interp1(x, v, x(k), mtd) == v(k) always true?

interp1(x, v, x(k), mtd) == v(k)
always true or does it depend on method and/or type of x and v? Followup: is the answer documented?

Yes, guaranteed. interp1 calls griddedInterpolant to do the work and that routine says,
"This surface always passes through the sample values at the point locations."

Accepted Walter's answer because it points in the right direction: griddedInterpolant. I think this answers my question although perhaps I should have emphasized more strongly what I was really asking: when the query point is a sample point, is the returned value bit-wise equal to the value at the sample point? The wording of the documentation still leaves this a little uncertain. The interpolant can "pass through the sample value" in the mathematical sense but still fail a == comparison.
