Is there a doc that describes where the properties of the apps manifest are used in display strings?
<Package xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/appx/2010/manifest"> <Properties> <DisplayName></DisplayName> <Description></Description> <PublisherDisplayName></PublisherDisplayName> <Logo>images\storelogo.png</Logo> </Properties>
Where is DisplayName, Description and PublisherDisplay name used?

The DisplayName and PublisherDisplayName are used by the store for search and app listing results. These properties are only important once you are ready to submit to the store and have reserved them there. The Description field is optional and is not currently used, though the Application Description is used by the Set Default Programs in Control Panel. Package Description is available via the PackageManager API so someone could try to use them down the road.
You should have a look at http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/apps/hh694077.aspx#name_appears for information on naming and describing your app and http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/apps/hh694075.aspx for information on what metadata is required for the Windows Store.
