That is correct. The file manager deals with the file system information 
for a file. It is possible to copy a file and keep it's original 
dates/times (cp -a I think) but the best place to find original file 
creation with a photo is in the file properties in the image tab. 
Darktable does this in the most convenient way that I can see. Image 
information can be left open at the side and the date/time of creation for 
any picture can be seen for the picture the mouse is hovering over.

Interesting, Darktable also has teathering.
