I didn't see that.  I saw when you objected to me fixing the bug many
years ago :-).  The atime update was too slow for executables on nfs
filesystems.  I only used it to reduce the number of non-conformances
found by the NIST Posix test suite.  There is now a PR about this bug
(kern/25777) with a very broken patch in it (it assume that all
filesystems are ufs and hacks on ufs's IN_ACCESS flag).
