What I meant was it's not guaranteed at the physical level in the datastore. Two cells in the same row could be stored in completely different "buckets" in the database, for example the data is stored in an index with a pointer from the row. I know that probably doesn't happen but if the guy who designed the database engine thinks it's more efficient there's nothing stopping him.
So even if you the database programmer *think* an operation should be atomic right down to the disk, there's no guarantee.
