We see the access date issue you've captured fairly often, and it IS the
actual filesystem data. Typically, this is the work of a backup process,
antivirus, or automated script -- something that's gone through the file
system and touched every file, without taking care to correct the Last
Access timestamp.

Likewise, modifications to the Last Modified timestamp are a common
issue -- not every program sets those correctly, and they can be
incorrectly manipulated during file copies and other actions.
