As a matter of fact, when called from the agenda `%U' doesn't expand as the
current timestamp but rather provides the date of the line your point is on.

Wouldn't it be more convenient to get the current timestamp anyway?

Suppose you would like to create a new appointment then
1. you view your agenda to see whether you're free on a particular date
2. you place the cursor on that date line
3. you invoke org-agenda-capture (hit `k' key) from there

then a template such as this one 

  ("a" "Appointment" entry (file+headline "~/gtd.org" "Inbox")
       "* APPT %?\n  %^T\n Added: %U")

would expand as

  * APPT Dentist
  <2012-12-25 Tue 18:00-19:00>
  Added: [2012-12-12 Wed 22:13]

which makes sense; instead of

  * APPT Dentist
  <2012-12-25 Tue 18:00-19:00>
  Added: [2012-12-25 Wed 00:00]

as it is today.
