This is basic TypoScript. You need to have certain TypoScript in
your DS if you want field to be formatted as date in the frontend.
It is for any field and not realy TemplaVoila specific.

(Probablt sounds very cryptic for you right now but you will learn,
do not worry)

It happens because BE and FE use different ways to represent the
data. For BE it is 'eval' in $TCA, for FE it is TypoScript.
