Where do pkgdown release dates come from?

From NEWS.md dates are automatically added next to releases. They seem vaguely related to Github releases, but are sometimes a few days off.

For {pkgdown} :package: documention, in functon build_news, the release date are coming from CRAN release

If the package is available on CRAN, release dates will be added for listed versions.

Thanks for reading the docs for me @cderv :blush:
