Most times it is easy to point on another guilty one instead looking what may 
happen with the own stuff. So far you are the only one with this misbehavior.
Qubes works as expected - at least in this point.
But most user already experienced this behavior; qubes-os or any other 
The keyword is hwclock. You always update the software-based time, but if you 
restart, all temporary data is gone. (should)
So your OS fetches at boot the time from the bios.
If you update your time within the qubes-os, you should update your hardware 
clock (hc) as well: sudo hwclock --systohc
If your time resets when you unplug your device from power supply, your 
device's battery is flat.
