The "n W" in the top-right corner of ZTree's FW indicates that what's displayed is the last-modified timestamp ("W") and the primary sort is by name ("n").

To show the creation date, instead, and sort by it:
- press Alt-S[ort];
- press F4 until the Timestamp cycles to "created";
- press [O]rder if needed to toggle between ascending/descending;
- press [D]ate.

After that, ZTree will display the creation timestamps, which will match 'dir /od /tc', so I don't see any bug there.

The far right snapshot which shows DateTimeOriginal/Digitized is probably displaying the EXIF information. Those timestamps are stored inside the JPEG and only exist for certain media formats that carry EXIF information. They are not file attributes like the regular created/modified/accessed timestamps which exist for all files, and which ZTree works with. There are ways to "copy" the internal EXIF dates to the file timestamps, if that's what you are after, but those require 3rd party utilities. See Laurent's post above, or check out the exiftool renaming examples.
