 An user reported an intermittent issue where if they edit a draft that's
 been saved for a few days and then publish it, the date remains the same
 as the post's creation date.

 This situation is happening on the 2 cases described below:

 1 - When you quick edit the post on WP-Admin and change the post's Status
 to Published, the date when the draft was created is kept as the Published

 2 - When you create a post, make changes on the mobile app (iOs on this
 case) and then open the post on WP-Admin to publish, it also set the
 Published Date to when the draft was created. (this was reported on the
 ticket 2927271)

 I was able to replicate these 2 situations on my test site. Other
 situations I tested, on Calypso, it worked as expected, once you publish
 on Calypso it changes the publishing date. Also works if you create the
 post on WP-Admin, save as a draft and publish later, it saves the correct
 publishing date.
