yes, it really sounds like you have not read the man file...

-T time-last-checked

Set the time the filesystem was last checked using
e2fsck. This can be useful in scripts which use a
Logical Volume Manager to make a consistent snapshot of a
filesystem, and then check the filesystem during off
hours to make sure it hasn't been corrupted due to
hardware problems, etc. If the filesystem was clean,
then this option can be used to set the last checked time
on the original filesystem. The format of
time-last-checked is the interna‚Äź tional date format,
with an optional time specifier, i.e.
YYYYMMDD[[HHMM]SS]. The keyword now is also accepted, in
which case the last checked time will be set to the
current time.

more likely there is something wrong that fsck is not correcting.
