I'm pretty sure it does. See section 1.4 "Nonparametric regression"
and 2.4 "Geostatistical example" in the GP User's Guide:
"I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless
enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as
though it had an underlying truth."
