RGB node linear output?

So I have this problem:

I need these to match. How do I get linear output out of a color node? Tried the old pow(1/2.2) but it’s not quite an exact match.

What exactly is happening here anyway? Is the RGB node outputting sRGB values, or is the Mix node converting the input from the value node into sRGB or something?

They match if you set the RGB sliders to 0.3, not the HSV ‘Value’.

Ok, yeah, you’re right.

Any idea why?

Intuitively, you’d expect a HSV value of 0/0/0.3 to translate to RGB 0.3/0.3/0.3
