On Nutrition Facts food labels, there is a Cholesterol value. Does that include both good and bad cholesterol?

If yes, how do you know if it is good cholesterol or not?

For example a package says shrimp has cholesterol and I read elsewhere that shrimp has good cholesterol... But the label on butter also says it has cholesterol!

My doctor said the cholesterol amount on nutrition facts includes good and bad cholesterol. So as said above, no telling!
