Published delayed pages
The scheduled job “Publish Delayed Page Versions“ list delayed pages in all the page providers. For the local page provider it looks at the properties DelayedPublished, ReadyToPublish and the start publish date is set for the page to be published, and then publish the page if the correct criteria is set.
Hiding pages that has an old StopPublish date
When pages are displayed to the end user all pages has to be filtered out that the current user should not see. The filter FilterForVisitors works in most of the cases.
