How does deep learning interpret date?

Hi I’m fairly new to all of this and learning as I go. I am using rapidminer go and noticed that I can have date as a variable.  What kind of ways does this get interpreted by the deep learning algorithm?

Does it look for changes in patterns over time and adjust accordingly?  Separate values by month, day of week etc?  All of the above?

Thank you for any help with this

    Go does quite a bit of preprocessing on it. It exports things like DayOfTheWeek and MonthOfTheYear. Those features are then pushed into DL.

    Awesome, is there a list available of all the things it exports? And does it also check if the target column tends to have streaks or things like that since the data can now be ordered by date? Or is that “time series?” (Haven’t gotten that far in my studies yet so I’m not sure exactly what that is, just heard the term)
