Inherent Document Properties and SharePoint - does SharePoint utilize them?

Last Modified: 2012-08-14
This question may reveal how truly naive I am about SharePoint but here it goes.

Does SharePoint, in any way, capture a typical documents properties? See pdf uploaded. Most documents have inherant properties or metadata, does sharePoint utilize this in any way? If so, how do I display this exact metadata inherant in a document in a column or elswhere in SharePoint. Note the modified date property is not the same in SharePoint. For example, if you move a file in SharePoint it's modifed date gets revised although the document content itself (or document itself)  is not modified. Do I have to re-create/add the document metadata by hand inside SharePoint. If not, where does SharePoint utilize the Document properties metadata.

Thank you for your help.
