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?

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

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.
