In what way?

I can't find `rdf:hasProperty` anywhere (or in RDFS either). 

I agree that the name is very generic, but I think that is intentional. This really is intended to indicate that a FeatureOfInterest is characterized at least in part by this property. The definition is the same as ssn:hasProperty, its just that it looks like a bit of an outlier that this is not available to users of the core part of the vocabulary - i.e. SOSA. 

> Is all we are trying to say that if an FOI has an observed property (via an observation) then this property is a property of the FOI?

Yes. If an observation makes an estimate of an observed property, concerning a feature of interest, then that property must be related to the feature of interest.
