Auto Enter Entry - when does filemaker auto enter a creation time stamp?

I've been looking around to try to find this info:

When in the process does a field that is set to Auto Enter: Creation Timestamp actually enter the data? On creation? On commit?

Is it the same for all creation and modification auto entry?

      I have a date field which uses the Evaluate Function in the Auto-enter by calculation to update the date when a Signature is entered into a container field.
      I just found out that the date is being updated with the SYNC date instead of keeping the original date that the signature was entered.
      For Example: a new signature is entered in the offline file on 10/3/17, the "Date" field gets auto-entered with a date of 10/3/17.  On 10/5/17 the offline file is sync'd with the host.  Now the date on the host has been entered with 10/5/17 instead of 10/3/17.
      How do I fix this so the original date gets entered and is not based on when the sync occurs?  I need to do this at the field level or Sync layout level, and not through a script trigger because I have the date field (actually 4 date fields) on over 100 layouts.

      Working on a POS System and wondering how the calculation on amount due can auto enter into whatever choice of payment is selected. ex. User clicks on Amex and amount due auto loads.

      I have a number field that I would like to auto enter either (2, 3, or 9) at random every time a new record is created.
      Please help!
      I tried to do a sequenced auto enter but filemaker simply counts up from 1 and I can't specify the 3 numbers.
