cyrus 2.3.8, internal dates not stored in message file time ?

I am testing a new cyrus 2.3.8 installation.

I have noticed that copying messages from one folder to another one
does keep messages internal dates but does not set message files write
time in the destination folder, as 2.2.12 does.

A quick grep in the sources reveals:

reconstruct.c:      /* Message file write time is good estimate of internaldate */

So, as I understand it, when reconstructing mailboxes, internal dates
will be lost. It this intentional, or did I miss something in the
docs/manual ?
