So, I'm not sure what actually is going on with mtime of the files

Yes, a git checkout will have the mtime of the checkout.
I've pushed an update to the calm repo with these changes:
- mksetupini and calm now exit with non-zero exit status on an error
- Fixes a bug where equal mtime was considered newer
- Adds 'mksetupini --disable-check=curr-most-recent' option to turn off
Do I need to package this for you to test it?
But why is this check of mtime needed at all? Isn't version number
enough for tracking earlier-later files?
Maybe this doesn't make much sense in the context of mksetupini, but
this is a useful check for calm to make.
People make mistakes.
People also forget the subtleties of how version numbers sort and upload
versions which aren't greater than the current version, when they think
