The mtimes on those files is as reliable as your system clock, because they’re generated during first install.

Contrast that with files unpacked from tarballs which can be backdated to the date the package maintainer created the package; that isn’t happening in this case.

I suspect the only reason your passwd file is newer than your group file is that you (or some tool) edited it after it was generated, presumably the same day /etc/group was generated.

Time gets away from us all.
