What I think you're looking for is the created time. This is a value that is
stored in the xml blob for the content_resource, but just isn't something
that is displayed in the compressed content UI. It looks like the functions
like getCreatedTime are there, so you should be able to modify the content
table to display it if it was a local requirement.

It's doesn't seem like a good idea to freeze or and it's not currently
possibly to manually the modified time, and it really wouldn't make sense.
The created time is the time that represents this value. This value is
visible on the "File Details" page.
