Nope, interpolate is done on the input side of container tags and
reparse is done on the output side.  If the [if] tag interpolated then
something like this wouldn't work like you think:

[if scratch bounce][bounce page="[scratch bounce]"][/if]

The above would always run the bounce tag if [if] interpolated it's
input.  Since it reparses instead then the above bounce tag only runs if
the test condition results in a true value.
