I just noticed a strange thing about the mis-match of the question's "last activity" status (i.e. modified in this case). To illustrate this better, I would like to include the following screenshots.
The main page of Meta.SE shows the question New navigation, alpha 2 released was
modified 24 mins ago Sklivvz ♦
Whereas, upon visiting to question, it shows (in the question status area) as

The standard way (from the post) to find out any updates made to post is to click on the "edited" link, but this time I did not bother to click on it as the given date/timestamp and displayed user name (as shown in the above screenshot) did not match to what was shown on the main page. I am clueless here.
So, out of curiosity, I decided to check on Sklivvz latest activity and guess what, nothing shows there about this question was edited by him today. Here is the screenshot of Sklivvz activity (all actions)
As you can see from the above screenshot, the latest activity made by Sklivvz was a comment
Let’s improve our site navigation which was made on the
Jul 4 (or 2015-07-04 15:09:09Z to be precise).
So, I am really confused here. Why does the question on the main page of Meta.SE is labeled with "modified" status when nothing was "modified" by Sklivvz at all (based on the facts shown in the screenshots above). Does diamond moderators have a secret method/ weapon by which they can update the question without leaving any trails of edit i.e. leaving the "edited" status (by who and when in the question status area) unchanged.
Please share your thoughts.
