rsync - change/modify date not correctly set

ua flag

Since Ubuntu 21.10 upgrade, we have a rsync error of file date set

In Ubuntu 21.10 : rsync 3.2.3-4ubuntu1 -> change and modified date are not copied during sync in most files

In Ubuntu 21.04 (and lower) : rsync 3.2.3-3ubuntu1 -> no problem detected (may be present but really discret)

With example on a file :

On u 21.10 for a file created at 12:45:07 :
Access: 2022-01-11 12:57:46.318656100 +0000

On u 20.04 for a file created at 12:45:07 :
Access: 2022-01-11 12:55:46.318656100 +0000
Modify: 2022-01-11 12:45:07.420173200 +0000

Birth: 2022-01-11 12:45:02.318656100 +0000

For context information : the error occur on local file and remote CIFS file

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
