Does the "Tension value" within certain operations in Catia, correspond to a certain level of continuity like G1, G2 or G3?

When making blended surfaces, multi-sections surfaces and etc. in Catia, you see a "Tension" value. Does it correspond to a certain level of continuity like G1, G2 or G3?

I think no, but I am not 100% sure. You can have tension values with tangency and curvature.

Check this: "The derivative at a point on a parametric curve is a vector quantity, and has both an angle and a length(tension).
As the value for the derivative at a point gets larger, so does its tension on the curve".
