When are keywords substituted?

Reading from the CVS (info) manual [keyword substitution / using

  To include a keyword string you simply include the relevant text
  string, such as `$Id$', inside the file, and commit the file.  CVS
  will automatically expand the string *as part of the commit

Is this true? I thought that expansion occured as a part of the
*export* (cvs checkout, cvs diff, cvs export, etc) operations.


Beware of bugs in the above code; I have only proved it correct, not
tried it.
