:-) I'm on the right track then.
(even if it won't take me anywhere)

I don't see how polynomial interpolation a filter, is it?

That makes sense.
Now I'm thinking that the zero order hold re-sampling
could be modelled as phase modulation by a saw tooth wave
in terms of the artefacts generated.
...and that low passing those artefacts gets you a model
of linear interpolation.
