Can a shared node have different value when probed while postprocessing?

Let's consider a corner node, which is shared by more than one mesh element. If we probe on each element one by one, is it acceptable that the same node(shared one) can have different values? If yes, then what should be the acceptance criteria(like tolerance value) for those values?

Note: I am considering here that Nastran solver calculates an average value.

I’m not quite sure what you are asking here. By values are you talking about nodal coordinates or are you asking about element quality?
