epoch

I have a question:

In the 2d line (21-32) of the "two-lines" TLE's
the reference day (epoch) is given with 8 decimals.
thus to .000001 of a second.

I presume those TLE's are made from several observations.
Is the given epoch the one of those observation?

My pleasure, avec plaisir,  Alphonse
