Must the "keywords" that you submit to a directory/search engine, appear somewhere in the text of your page?

For search engines, yes. In general you will get much better results if your keywords are used in the text of the page, preferably in the first paragraph.

For directory's it does not matter if the keywords are in the text of the page. Only words in the page title and description are searchable in directory's.
