What timezone is used to load into Azure SQL DB

I am using ADF to extract Salesforce data and load it into our Azure SQL DB. I always thought Azure uses/converts datetimes into UTC. My Salesforce profile is set to PST, but the Azure SQL db is in East region.

So data in Salesforce is createddate = 3/19/2021 15:00:00
The createddate when loaded into the DB = 3/19/2021 18:00:00

The getdate() on the Azure SQL db is 10 pm (UTC time when it is 6 pm EST)

So does ADF covert all times to the region of where the DB is or can we have it load all times as UTC?
