Publisher export to PDF Title property

Where does Publisher get the Title property from when exporting to PDF?

I have not done a lot of testing with the various PDF export presets/options, but from what I have tried, the default Title property is the same as the document name if it has one, otherwise it is "Untitled."

However, the Title & many other document properties can be set in the Fields Studio panel's Document Information section:


I do not have Acrobat to test with, but using the Mac Preview.app's Inspector I get things like this:

So my guess is Title, Author, & Subject fields are used if provided; &Tags are interpreted as a comma separated list; but I have no idea what comments become or how long they can be. (Not shown in the Fields screenshot, what I actually used was "nothing to see here. Move along."
