[Getdp] Output of magnetodynamic simulation using getDP - values stored at nodes or integration points

I am currently working on the resolution of an magnetodynamic problem to 
model heating by induction.
I would like to know how the values of heat dissipation (rhoj2) are 
stored in the output .pos files.

Are these values:
  - calculated at the integration points of elements and interpolated at 
the nodes,
  - or are they integration point values simply stored at the 
coordinates of the nearest nodes?

This would be useful in order to best compute what is the integral value 
of dissipated heat over a set of elements.
