CreateDate for List Items in Manage Site Content and Structure

Just discovered that when you Copy or Move content using Manage Site Content and Structure the target content has the EXACT same CreateDate +1 second. Not sure why this is but since the GUIDs are not preserved for either move or copy this could end up being very useful if you have data in SQL outside of SharePoint that references the ObjectID.
