Default displacement output from elasticNonLinTLSolidFoam

Terry H is on a distinguished road

I'm using elasticNonLinTLSolidFoam, and would like to be able to pair the vertex (?) coordinates output in constant/polyMesh---in particular, the "points" text file generated by blockMesh---to the displacement field output from elasticNonLinTLSolidFoam at these vertices (that is, the text file "U" generated by elasticNonLinTLSolidFoam for each time step).

What is the ordering that associates a point (x,y,z) with a displacement (Ux,Uy,Uz)? In other words: what coordinate (x,y,z) in the "points" text file file corresponds to the displacement (Ux,Uy,Uz) in the "U" text file file?

Thank you in advance for any pointers or guidance you can offer about this!
