They are useful in general for files that are not part of gnulib modules.
For example, in some project I was using a config.guess+config.sub combination
that was not updated in 8 years or so. The time stamp near the file header
made me aware of it.

However, for files that are only ever copied through gnulib-tool's module
system, I would not say that the time stamp is "really needed".
