Will Starship be involved with the return of the Mars samples?

Will Starship be involved in any way? Like launching the actual lander, or providing orbital fuel to another rocket, providing Earth reentry and landing for a return capsule, or doing the whole going to Mars and return.
If it's only delivering Starlinks to Mars for comms or something like that, then that doesn't count, unless the comms are specifically for MSR rather than general purpose.

As the main Yes holder in these markets, the second proposal pleases me. I'll hold the "I told you so"s for the final selection though :D

Starship will probably bring back the samples. It could also bring back the rover to put in the Smithsonian! Gotta love Starship’s cargo volume!
