File time stamps - Haiku mis-handles FAT32 time stamps

Haiku mis-handles the file created and file last modified time stamps on FAT32 volumes which are exchanged between Haiku and Windows.
The issue is likely related to https://dev.haiku-os.org/ticket/14069 which is in the context of file exchange between Haiku and Linux.
I have exchanged files between Haiku and Windows via FAT32 formatted flash drives and noted the following:
Haiku reports the same time stamps for file creation and file last modification for all files and folders on the FAT32 volume. When mounted in Windows, most of these files and folders have file creation time stamps earlier than file last modification time stamps (i.e. they have been edited a number of times since they have been created).
When saving a file to a FAT32 volume, Haiku sets a file creation date time stamp which is showing as blank when the volume is mounted in Windows.
Haiku respects the file last modification time stamps when copying from FAT32 to BFS and from BFS to FAT32.
