Here's your explanation:

   * The checkout, update, switch, and revert commands all set a
working-file's timestamp to "now" whenever a file is created or
changed.

   * This behavior can be tweaked to use last-commit-timestamp instead,
by altering the option in the run-time 'config' file.

   * The export command always creates files with the
last-commit-timestamp. AFAIK, there's no way to change it to use "now"
time.

Hope this clarifies, sorry for misleading earlier.
