An ILE program object (any language, not just RPG) can be made up of MANY different modules so it doesn't make sense to have a source date for a program object.

Sorry, I must have missed that note somewhere along the way. This isn't even a CRTDUPOBJ issue, but RPG compiler is not populating source date for RPGLE programs, only for the modules.
Why did IBM do this?
