How metadata of file is preserved when copying from computer to pen drive and pen drive to a different computer

With this question, I understand time stamps of a file (for example, ‘modification date’) are not stored in the file, but saved in the file system(NTFS for example), most probably in MFT records.

If this is the case, how the timestamps are preserved (for example, ‘modification date’) when a file is copied to a pen drive and later from the pen drive to a computer? When we copy to pen drive, these timestamps must reset, correct?

Request anyone to help me to understand this.
