Note that file1 is in the EST timezone (GMT+10) and the second file1
(file2?) is in the EDT timezone (GMT+11 during daylight saving.)

Not if you take into account the different timezones.

Evidently your filesystem also stores the timezone, which is why the two
files have different timezones on them. It would seem that the current
behaviour is correct - file1, although modified before daylight saving
started, is being reported as though daylight saving was in effect at
