I don't use growisofs, but I just tried to reproduce your problem
with mkisofs directly and failed:
fk at T51 ~ $ls -l test/cdrtools-2.01.01a03.tar 
-rw-r--r--  1 fk  wheel  8290816 Oct 24 10:18

fk at T51 ~ $ls -l /mnt/md0/cdrtools.tar
-r-xr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  8290816 Oct 24 10:18 /mnt/md0/cdrtools.tar*

Do you see the problem if you only use mkisofs?

You can mount the iso without burning it:
mdconfig -a -t vnode -f image.iso -u 0
mount -t cd9660 /dev/md0 /mnt

After reading your post a second time, I'm no longer sure
if I understood you correctly. You don't expect mkisofs
to change the date for you, right?
