I remember I was looking at the same "appendjob.cpp" file when I first reported
the issue. At the time I was hoping to be able to pinpoint the issue and even
make a small patch that fixes it. Unfortunately, I'm not at all familiar with
KDE's codebase and there seem to be a number of different components at play.

But I think you're absolutely right. From what I understand in the way that KDE
works, KMail connects to Akonadi which actually does the handling of all
PIM-related tasks. So even though the issue manifests itself in KMail, it may
in fact be related to the way that Akonadi handles IMAP resources in which case
this report ought to be filed under Akonadi.

In either case, if Akonadi has no sense of what the internal date is, this
doesn't explain why single part plaintext emails are not affected - at least
not in the scenarios I provided. Unless, as you suggest, it's fetching the date
from IMAP on-the-fly when the operation is performed.

I will have another look at the source code when I get a chance.
