it has to work in the same way as it used to do.  It seems to work well
here, using the last revision from the source repository:

$ LANG=C ./wget -q -d http://www.gnu.org/graphics/gnu-head-mini.png 2>&1 | grep 
Last-Modified: Sun, 05 Dec 2010 20:58:51 GMT

$ LANG=C stat gnu-head-mini.png  | grep ^Modify
Modify: 2010-12-05 21:58:51.000000000 +0100

Can you please provide more information?  What version of wget (wget
--version)?  What operating system?  Do you get a different output using
that two commands?

This is also useful for debugging, do you see something different?

$ LANG=C strace -e utimensat ./wget -q 
utimensat(4, NULL, {{1313833704, 0}, {1291582731, 0}}, 0) = 0
