Yes, the behavior is intentional.

Works for me.  How are you setting it?

Make sure MHonArc is finding the resource file.  When running mhonarc
in non-quiet mode, it will print out each resource file it reads.
For example:

    shell> mhonarc -out out inbox
 => Reading resource file: /home/earlhood/.mhonarc.rc ...
    Converting messages to out
    Reading inbox .........

    Writing mail .........
    Writing out/maillist.html ...
    Writing out/threads.html ...
    Writing database ...
    9 messages

=> Default resource file.

Also, if specifying a resource file via RCFILE, make sure it is not
setting MSGGMTDATEFMT, overriding the setting in the default rcfile.
