Default timeVaryingMappedFixedValue and singleGraph

kaaja is on a distinguished road

I am using timeVaryingMappedFixedValue for the inlet for epsilon and k in a channel flow running rans-models.
Plotting the inlet profiles of k and epsilon using singleGraph with "type midPoint" , shows that these profiles varies with time.
This surprised me a little, since I think the inlet is suppised to be constant.

I tried checking the inlet profiles of the real data (k and epsilon) with paraFoam using "plotOverLine" for the inlet. I would get time varying inlet when having activated only "internalMesh", while I got constant inlet if I activated "inlet - patch".

The paraFoam observation leads me to think that singleGraph does not use the real inlet, but some values close to it. It that correct?

If that is correct, does anybody know of a way to get singlegraph to include the real inlet?
