How does the interrail pass work with Eurostar?

To get onto Eurostar with a ‘normal’ ticket, you scan the ticket at the barrier.  The ticket bar code has encoded your train ticket which includes your seat reservation and the barrier opens.  However with interrail do you not have two separate components - your interral ticket showing that you are eligible to travel in Europe that day and your seat reservation for  a particuar Eurostar train.   So what do you do in order to board a Eurostar train - and does it work any differently compared to when using a normal ticket?

You scan the reservation at the gate like a valid ticket. Sometimes it lets you through right away, sometimes you must go to a counter and show your pass (depends on how busy the terminal is).
