Read the tutorial again(!) and this time pay close attention to the
paragraph called "Data Resampling" at the end.  This also applies to
your case and cannot be switched off as it is the way RRDtool works.
Also have a look at Consolidation.

If you want an ordinary database where numbers come out like they
got in, use an ordinary database and not RRDtool.

By the way:
When reading the tutorial you'll find that something has changed
in RRDtool and not yet in the tutorial.  Numbers displayed by
"rrdtool fetch" is now in scientific notation whereas they are
written down as normal numbers in the tutorial.
