I'm still confused about how Mechanize would be getting the munged date but a normal browser wouldn't

Because a browser can run JavaScript, and WWW::Mechanize can't (update: though other modules can, e.g. JavaScript::SpiderMonkey - as suggested by Fletch). Anyway, it's the (JavaScript in the) browser that is munging the date, not WWW::Mech.
