Updating Featured Image Doesn't Change the_modified_time

When a user changes a featured image on a post, the_modified_time does not reflect that the post has changed. While featured images used to be used only internally, these are now often expressed in meta-data in Open Graph or Schema tags.

If the_modified_time doesn't change, outside services won't know that the image that should be used to represent the post has changed. Changing the featured image IS a modification of the post, and changing it ought to be reflected in the the_modified_time value.

Hi @rsingel, thanks for taking the time to open a report.

Featured image data for a post is stored as post meta. #24266 would account for this data as well. That ticket has a patch and is looking for feedback and testing.
