Ending balance in FireCalc

Is the three possible (low, high and average) ending balances at the end of your retirement estimated term - inflation adjusted, or in todays dollars?

In case you don't understand, when you run FireCalc for say 30 years with a particular portfolio and withdrawls, and at the end of 30 years, Firecalc give you three estimates of your remaining portfolio at the end of that 30 years. Are those $ in todays dollars or inflation adjusted?

Firecalc gives about 130 numbers, one for each possible cycle. The low, average, and high are just summary figures.
