I do not think the above clarifies anything to be of much help.

If you _know_ what "actually changed" means, i.e. either contents or
the executable-ness changed, then "(not those ...)" does not help
you at all.

If you don't, then "only stat information change" will invite "I did
chmod -x and the file does not have any actual change." confusion.

If this addition is to help people who do not know what "actually
changed" means, that part needs to be clarified, no?
