In a cluster, reads are leader-based too, right?

I remember seeing somewhere on the ODL wiki that in order to maintain strong consistency, reads issued to a follower will also go through the leader. Could someone please confirm that this is the case? If you can link me to the page on the wiki where that's stated, that would be even better. The page at mentions that "When data needs to be read or written to a shard, the ShardManager will pass the module name of the data and the instance identifier of the data to a ShardStrategy which will then locate the shard on which the data belongs." I assume this is referring to the Leader for that shard. If that's true, I think an affirmation of that might be sufficient backing evidence for confirmation.
