How exactly does the data store work?

I'm currently in the process of upgrading from ArcGIS 10.0 to ArcGIS 10.2 and one of the new features is the cluster based data store.  I have no problems creating connections in my data store, but when I'm creating my service definitions, it appears to pull the connection information right out of the .mxd files.


It would be nice to create a service definition file that references a named data store on a server, then be able to publish that definition to servers in various environments and have it use the connection information specific to that environment without having to modify the connection information in the .mxd files for each environment.


Perhaps I'm missing something, but so far, I haven't figured out how to make ANY service use the data store connection information.
