I couldn't reproduce it.  I have `strace'd but I can't see any syscall
which could modify the time stamp.  Can you please attach the strace
and the wget debug log?  You can get it by:

strace -o strace.log wget <args> -d -o wget.log

AFAICS, the behaviour you get using --no-clobber and -r is documented,
and it should work exactly as you described it (a newer version is
ignored).  The old version is still traversed for links.
