It works more like the Illustrator blob brush.
If you want to draw and leverage each stroke as a path, check out (uhhhh...) Photoshop Sketch?
You can bring it into Adobe Illustrator, then convert all of the individual strokes into paths (you'll lose any custom brush definitions in the conversions)
it also works with adobe line, but i just tested photoshop sketch and really like it
funny that you can't do it in adobe draw
