From what I understand about formatting of text messages, if the message is backed up, the date is backed up also. The timestamp is part of the actual text message. So any backup app that backs up texts specifically, will back them up with the original date and time the text was sent (not received) because again the timestamp is part of the message itself. This article is quite informative How Stuff Works.
