 I haven't seen it.

 Most of us won't notice this, because we don't run 'date' during
the build (or, not in that term/tty).  As you say, in other terms /
ttys the expected date will be shown.  I don't know if it's an
expected by-product of how we build, but it seems (from *your*
experience) that we should expect it.

 Is it causing you a problem (e.g. unexpected results in your
scripts) ?  If not, I see no reason to worry.
