I don't think so.

If you do a checkout, everything will appear new. That makes sense;
you created a new working directory. If you issue "make" in that,
everything will build, just as you need.

If you then do an update, only files changed in the repository will be
touched, so only those have their dates changed. Yes, the dates are
those of the update, not those in the repository. That doesn't hurt;
either way, it is those files that are out of date and those files
whose dependencies are rebuilt.
