We are talking about working copy here, not commit times. The timestamps on
the pristine local copy in the .svn folder, and the user's working file
should be the same after you do a checkout or update. They diverge when the
user edits the file, and then come back into sync on commit/update.

But if the user file timestamp changes without the content changing, there
is nothing to commit, so they do not get resync'd.
