If a punt returner receives the ball in the end zone and is tackled in the end zone is it a touch back or safety?

As long as the returner never steps out of the endzone with the ball than it is a touchback, because it would be just like taking a knee. But if he was ever outside of the endzone with the ball and gets tackled in the endzone it is a safety.
