What is the correct behaviour for multimedia keys/function keys?

When you press volume up/down or mute or say, raise the brightness level. Is there meant to be visual feedback from Gnome by default?

If there isn't, what are you meant to go about doing? I have a Thinkpad and my keys are detected but without installing 'tpb' I get no visual feedback with the GUI.

When you plug back into ac from being on battery there's already a gui element there, a small square box with a sun and a progress meter underneath it. Is that the default in Fedora?

I'm just looking to try and understand the expected behaviour before I start trying to get this working by default, by filing bugs. Are these issues HAL issues?
