From IndieWeb

created is the datetime a post was started by an author, which may be different from the date the post was published, such as when a post is authored offline and sent or saved to a website later.

Note that this created datetime is from the authorโ€™s perspective, the datetime when the author takes an action to start a new post, not when some web server or other backend specific data structure or other plumbing is created.
