English is a language which is often mangled by its users. Although I
do not know where the phrase appears in the gimp, I would guess that
"sampling point" is more nearly correct, presuming that it is a point
which is being sampled, rather than a point randomly picked from a
collection of points and offered up as an indication of what the
points generally look like, which is what "sample point" would mean.

Perhaps someday a "correct_english.pot" could be prepared.... Good
luck in your endeavours!
