That all depends how it allocates tile memory.  If it mallocs tile by tile
then they could be anywhere, including separate pages.  If it mallocs a
large block (system page size) and then divides it into tiles itself then
those tiles are *likely* to reside on the same page - which is what matters
most for performance if memory is stretched.

This is unlikely, as the gimp has no say in the physical layout of the
memory
it gets from the kernel.
