[CentOS] why does automounting removable media always have options nodev, noexec, nosuid?

  i'm experimenting with some basic removable media mounting
exercises for an upcoming class, and i read that, while you can use
gconf-editor to change some of the mount options in cases like that,
there is no way to override the mount options of nodev, noexec and
nosuid.  for example, that claim is made here (admittedly for fedora,
but it appears to be true for centos as well):


is there somewhere that one could see and verify that those options
always hold for mountable filesystems on removable media?  thanks.
