Could be either. You could address them as 1st, 2nd, 3rd ... from
some arbitrarily nominated origin, in which case it's addressing by
position. Or you could assign the points distinct names, eg. "red",
"blue", "green" ...in which case enumeration is just the name
resolution mechanism, ie. to find the point named "blue", start
anywhere, and keep on going till you reach the point with that label.
cp. ordinal vs. nominal numbers.

No, the points _are_ the curve ... there's nothing in between or
outside, in the same way that 0.5 isn't in between 0 and 1 on the
natural number line.
