I think I am seeing something similar. There was a Y2K bug in the date
handling on amiga, not sure if the bug was in AmigaOS, Linux-m68k (kernel),
hwclock, or all three of them. And it seems nobody really fixed it, although
somethings seems to have changed recently. If you have time to spare, you
are welcom to hunt it down.
Battery backup up clock chip can only handle 2 digits. kernel was fixed for
A2000, but not for A3000/A4000. Patch is trivial, I can dig in my archives
if anyone want to know details. I can't test on A3000/4000.
