No, it means the time interval from 3:01 to 4:00.

This usually depends on the field.  For example, solar radiation is usually 
interpreted as:
Amount of solar radiation in Wh/m2 received from the sky (excluding the 
solar disk) on a horizontal surface during the 60 minutes preceding the 
hour indicated

But Dry bulb temperature:
Dry bulb temperature in tenths of degrees C at the hour indicated.

(Above examples taken directly from the TMY 2 manual).

You can read about EnergyPlus hourly interpolation at page number 1075 in 
the IOReference document.
