The changelog times are not stored as date strings in the binary RPM

rpmbuild, assuming arbitrary values for the missing h:m:s (possibly
0:0:0).

They're stored as seconds-since-the-epoch - see CHANGELOGTIMES
in an rpm query.

And more specifically, the date in the specfile is interpreted as noon on that day, UTC.
