An interesting plot! It appears that Mathematica does not evaluate 'f' at a
sufficient number of points. In the documentation, i could not find a way
to control that; perhaps others will. This code shows the problem:

Clear[f, g, z];
z = {};
f[x_] := If[EvenQ[IntegerPart[x]], 0.4, 0.8];
g[x_] := (z = {z, x}; f[x]);
Plot[g[x], {x, 1, 101}]
z // Flatten // IntegerPart // DeleteDuplicates // Sort
