No. Normal RGB Amiga signal (15 KHz) is always outputting in *interlaced* 50Hz mode.
It never outputs a 288p progressive signal. Never.
So the assumption that the output signal is always 576i is correct.
Amiga interlaced (highres) modes have a further "internal" interlacing, meaning that the refresh is half the normal (that's why these modes are so fatiguing for the eyes). But ALL Amiga modes are output as interlaced (apart from the new ECS productive modes, shown on 31KHz monitors).
