Is there a chip in the key?

I went to a local hardware store to get another key made for my 97 F-250 HD. I have two keys, but want a third to keep in the tool box in case I locked my keys in the truck. But they said it had a chip in it, so I would be able to open the doors, but not start it.

And they also said that if I tried to start the truck with that key, I would need to reprogram the computer to use my original key. I have never heard of this before. does this guy just not know, or is it true?

So do any of these trucks actually have a chip in the key?
