Default tell hunting

this situation has come up with me a few times now:

i bet, opponent folds, i muck. opponent asks me a question about my hand. i answer whatever i feel like saying (true or untrue), and then i say "what difference does it make? you'll never know if i was telling you the truth." and then i get this. "it doesn't matter, i just wanted to see how you'd respond."

what could my opponent gain from seeing "how i respond" if he doesn't know if i'm telling the truth? gauge how i look when i said that vs when i've said something that's obviously truthful? that's the only thing i can think of. that, or he's just saving face because he really has no point.

A lot of people just respond, "I had the winning hand." It's always true regardless of what you held.

If they're a reasonable player I'm getting on with OK, I usually either tell the truth or say something else that was reasonably consistent with how I played the hand. Being friendly is more +EV than extra secrecy in the lower limit live games I play (4/8 and 6/12).

If I'm interested in stirring them up a bit I'll either say, "I don't remember," or "Dunno. I never looked at them."
