What goes into the signing of a Chinese painting?

I would like to know if the chop marks used in Chinese paintings usually say the same thing as the painting characters near it. For example, if an artists signs his/her name in ink, does their chop say the exact same thing?

I already know that sometimes the characters on the paintings are not signatures, but phrases or quotes instead.

Tha artist will usually sign their name and put a chop mark with their name. Chops can also have phrases or the names of their studios.
