It has to go through all flat file inodes to find time modified. Unlike MULTICS, UNIX ufs does not have a modify time that rippples up through the tree, so you have to check all periodically. No free lunch.

Is it doing more?

Is there a difference in the systems that might make times look different, like unix-windows? Try -c.
