I found a couple of what may be intermediate items--using "interpollate"
(not all hits in GB are useful).
Unsettling Beliefs: Teaching Theory to Teachers. By Josh Diem, Robert J.

But not all "interpollate" arise from "interpellate"--some are just typos
The Shape of Intimacy: Private Space and the British Scial Imagination,

The Neighbor: Three Inquiries in Political Theology. By Slavoj Žižek, Eric
L. Santner, Kenneth Reinhardp. 30. Footnote 47.

[These are not exhaustive on either count.]
A simple misreading of "interpellates" as "interpollates" by a typesetter
(or editor--in a more contemporary version of publishing) can lead to an
editorial correction to "interpolate". "Interpollate" specifically shows up
in Words You Should Know How to Spell: An A to Z Guide to Perfect Spelling.
The "correction" is to "interpolate"--no explanation and no other options.
