Incorrect Information in Date Column

I am currently on version 5.5.1 and I noticed a small bug with the Date column when working with Posts. Essentially, when moving a scheduled post to draft mode, the Date columns shows the original scheduled date as the last modified date.

To reproduce:

  • Create a new post and schedule it for the future
  • After scheduling the post, go back to the main Posts page you will see the new post listed as Scheduled in the Date column
  • Edit the same post, and switch it to draft
  • Return to the main Posts page it will show Last Modified and the original scheduled date (in the future) in the Date column, instead of the actual time when it was last modified

See attached example of post that was original scheduled for October 28th at 10am.
