Yeah, in git no file (object) is modified when you push or pull
commits, they're just copied from one place to another.

The committer date on the commit you mentioned is likely the time
I updated the ChangeLog prior to pushing, so that date will be the
"push date", but that's not guaranteed to be the case for all
commits.
