On the RPGLE program not having source information, I’ve worked with 2 CM packages that IF CRTBNDRPG was used to create the program they updated the program object description with the modules source information post compile. So even if someone used a binding directory to bind multiple modules in CRTBNDRPG the program had the named modules source information.
On rare occasion this can cause confusion when another module is updated, the program recreated to bind in the updated module via BNDDIR and the source info is unchanged as the named module is unchanged.

One of these packages also had the option to reset the create date post CRTDUPOBJ to match the date on the source system so everything would line up if you compared them.

They both had commands that could update just about ANY object description field and I bet there’s others out there, maybe from TAATOOLS and the like.
Be pretty easy to write a CL that called CRTDUPOBJ then used the API or a command to set the create date in the target to match the source object.
