I tried to use stat(1) to see the last time a file was downloaded

To my surprise, all three dates displayed by stat are long ago, even
though the web-server's log is showing downloads from a just a few
hours back.

The file-system used to be mounted noatime, but I turned that option
off some time ago. If I read one of those files (with head(1) or
file(1), for example), the atime is updated. But if Apache serves it
out -- it is not... There is no caching in Apache either.

Is this all running on your local machine? If not, is it possible that
there is a proxy server between you and the host running Apache?
Perhaps a transparent proxy?

There are not other servers and no proxies. The locally running apache logs
successful requests for the files, but their atimes are not updated.

Just checked -- the file was last downloaded 13 minutes ago, but  all of
the three time-stamps (according to stat(1)) point to many hours back...
