What is the definition of "Lead Created Date" in the Contacts Module

Can someone from Zoho please provide the official definition of what the "Lead Created Date" in the Contacts Module is?

I assume it is the date the lead was created in the database, but things aren't always what they seem so I want to make sure.

Thank you.
