I had a discussion on this issue with k3b developer Sebastian 
Trueg. Here is some of that:

>>> it's a mkisofs bug, no chance this can be solved in k3b. 
>>> sorry. The mkisofs developer is aware of the bug though.

>>Thank you for the answer.
>>However If I create an iso file using mkisofs on a command 
>>line (eg. "mkisofs -J -r -o ISO.iso ./" and mount the iso file 
>>as a loop device (eg. "mount ISO.iso /mnt -t iso9660 -o 
>>loop"), the folder dates are the same as the originals.  
>>Practically these are not the creation dates but the 
>>modification dates, I guess, but it's never mind anyway.
>>But if I use k3b these dates are not the same but the folders 
>>get the current dates.
>>Why is this then?

>K3b uses the -graft-points option with mkisofs.
>preserving the folder dates is buggy in mkisofs only if this
>option is used.
