[Samba] Cases where Samba modifies a file without changing the timestamp?

apart from the mmap(2)ed DBM files that Samba uses, are they any cases
where Samba will *modify* data files without setting the mtime ?

I have issues with rsync not seeing changes to Samba exported files
(md5sum don't match). The mtime is however in the very distant past (say
2004), but the content seems to have changed.

I don't think it's a data integrity issue.

Any idea ?
