It looks to me as though fsck(8) doesn't help you in this area.
[Changing the modification timestamp would be the wrong thing to do
anyway, in my opinion -- the contents haven't necessarily been changed
since the previous time the stamp was touched.  Other fields might
make sense, though.]

I don't claim to be an authoritative voice on this, however.  Also
note that the filesystem type might affect the answer; I only checked
the code for FFS.

Be well.
