"Travel Date" setting - what for?

My TZ80, and I assume a lot of other Panasonic cameras, has a setting called Travel Date. I can set the start and end dates and a location. Apparently I can use the Text Stamp setting to imprint the location on the photos, but don't want to do that.

If I take photos between those dates, I can see in a hex editor that the location is saved in the jpg files. I can't see it in the list of Exif values in Irfanview.

So where is the location stored in the file? Can it be access for things like searching my location? Google Photos doesn't seem to use it.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS60 (Lumix DMC-TZ80)
