What were you expecting?

iTunes, or any other disc burning software, will only burn the information contained in the file you choose to burn.

Album names, artists, dates, etc. are not contained in the music track.

All appears to be normal here

No, that information is only stored in the database

that iTunes uses.

That information is not even on a commercial CD!

I guess you next question will be, "but it appears in iTunes when I import a CD"

Yes, it does, and that's because iTunes goes out to the internet, thence GraceNote database, to gather all the information about that particular CD.
