Shrink Fit, shows interference in Reults

I'm running a simulation with multiple shrink fit contact sets. When the problem is setup and before it is run, the model shows clearly that the two materials interfere (overlap) slightly. After simulating, the results show separation of the materials at part of the interface while still showing material interference at other locations. Is it safe to assume that if there is interference then there is no separation of the two faces?
