Where is the code for DistanceMatrix?

DistanceMatrix is defined in the HierarchicalClustering package and in the
HierarchicalClustering` context. But if I open  in the
HierarchicalClustering .m file D:\Program Files\Wolfram
Research\Mathematica\7.0\AddOns\Packages\HierarchicalClustering directory, I
find 

If[ Not@ValueQ[DistanceMatrix::usage],
 DistanceMatrix::usage = "DistanceMatrix[list] computes the \
  symmetric matrix of distance or dissimilarity coefficients between \
the elements of list."]

If I do 

Needs["HierarchicalClustering`"]
?DistanceMatrix 

then I get  

DistanceMatrix [ list ] gives a matrix of distances or dissimilarities
between the elements of  list . >>

which is not what the usage message says

Then I try to find the code for the function DistanceMatrix, but I do not
find it in this file. Where is it? Is it hidden in the Kernel? 
If it is in the Kernel, why is it not available without loading
HierarchicalClustering?
