Yes, it does look like Bug #7, though in this case Squid is adding the
lines that do not get updated (i.e. Age:), so I am only presuming that
the download time is stored with the "Headers on the disk".

Also in this case Squid is creating the problem by adding the max-age
tag to the Cache-Control line in the request, so an alternative
solution would be to configure all the squids in the chain to not do
that. If I knew how to do that short of stripping out cache-control
from all the requests ...
