Normally, when you mount something, the attributes (mode bits,
timestamp, etc) of the mounted-on object are hidden, replaced by the
attributes of the root of the mounted filesystem.

The real question here is why your FAT32 filesystem has a root
directory with a mode that maps to 002 and a timestamp in 1979, and the
only way that can be a NetBSD question is if the problem is in the
NetBSD code that maps FAT32 attributes to NetBSD attributes.
