"It" = searching for a phrase from your meta tag will bring up the page that the meta tag occurs on.
But, as noted via further experiment, only coincidentally. Although Google has your meta description indexed, it doesn't count as part of the page for search purposes. Only for result-display purposes.
Perversely, terms that don't occur on the page at all-- see utterly unrelated post from 2011 involving words "world's leading authority" --ARE used in searching. The moral, I guess, is: It doesn't matter what you say about yourself, only what others say about you.
For comparison purposes I ran over and tried my two /fonts/ queries on That Other Search Engine, and then in yandex for good measure. Identical results every time.
