No, it's not, the current behaviour is a valid way to behave.

There is no single "correct" behaviour. Propagating the transaction
timestamp onto checked out files is a valid alternative to the current
approach, essentially that is the way ClearCase behaves, but keep in
mind that doing this will interact in "interesting" ways with the
traditional make approach to building derived objects (e.g. I could do
an update, have the modified files move backwards in time, and not get
anything rebuilt).
