Check out the `core.trustctime` and `core.checkstat` options.

On the other hand, I'd say that even those options won't do what you
want.

See also [1] which contains pointers to interesting discussions in
its most upvoted answer.  From that discussion I gather that `git
status` relies on mtime but creating actual commit still rehashes all
the stuff so may be what's really required in your case is
`git add -f -u` or `git add -f -A`, I dunno.
