Not true. For a given set of points a natural cubic spline is created by setting the second derivative to 0 at the end points and requiring continuity of both the first and second derivative at all points. So, past the end points, the curve will be a line (continuous first derivative, second and higher derivatives = 0)

However, it is true the package SplineFit will not extend the spline past the end points in the original data set.
