Civil 3d calclulates triangles.
These triangles have a specific and only one slope.
So when civil 3d returns the slope, in fanct returns the slope of each triangle.
In fact the slope of each triangle is a slope of a "straight furface", coming from the 3 points of the triangle.
I hope i helped you

Are asking about the specifi formula Civil 3D uses ? If so, Civil 3D creates surfaces using the Delaunay triangulation method. 

from there slopes are derived use the triangles as described by nkiakas
