Turning off file flags during restore

I have some data on a NetApp which I am in the process of migrating to a 
machine running FreeBSD. I dump the data off the NetApp to one big file on 
the FreeBSD machine. When I restore the data I get some odd file flags like 
-rw-r--r-- 1 www www schg 73 Jul 27 22:04 foo.txt

I understand that some of the attributes on the NetApp may be confusing 
restore. I don't really have a problem with that. Is there a way to not set 
the file flags during restore? I don't really want to chflag a few million 
files if I don't have to. Also, of course, changing the flags updates the 
file's ctime.
