How to stop Dolphin from updating access times

I have noticed that whenever I view a directory in Dolphin, the 
atimes of certain files are updated, even without me actually 
opening any files.

Which files are 'accessed' apparently depends on their 
extensions. For example an empty .ogg file will have its atime 
updated, while an empty .m4a file will not. I have disabled all 
previews but that hasn't helped.

Is there any way to disable this Behaviour?
