WP-admin last modified showing future dates

Hiya, I got rerouted here: We've recently found that in the wp-admin, the last modified dates act strange with drafts of pages and posts. In the new editor this is ok because there are separated tabs for scheduled posts and such, but the wp-admin gets confusing when you set a schedule date for a draft of a page or post. Essentially, that scheduled date becomes the "last modified" date.

Steps to reproduce
Starting at URL:
Create a page or post
Set the scheduled date and save as draft
What I expected
The "Last modified" area should show today's date

What happened instead
The "Last Modified" area shows the scheduled date

Browser / OS version
Chrome Version 63.0.3239.84 (Official Build) (64-bit) / MacOS 10.13.2 (17C88)

Since this was already reported in #32386, it makes sense to keep the discussion at one place instead of opening a new ticket for it.

Feel free to upload any patches there, but it's also worth reading that ticket's history to learn why it hasn't been fixed already. It seems to be more complex than initially thought by the contributors.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
