Usb and files internal time source

Do usb storage devices have any sort of internal clock on the device itself, or do the date modified/accessed/created dates shown on files stored on the device get populated by the PC's they have been plugged into?

The physical disk has some idea of time for error logging but that's for SMART data rather than file/data creation. As Dave Baldwin says the time stamps in the file system come from whatever it is connected to.
