Timestamp doesn't affect connection visibility, it only shows if/when the
connection was used last.
You don't see it in nm-applet, because the items nm-applet shows are visible
SSIDs. As your network is hidden, it won't be shown until you connect.
You should see the configured connection profile in nm-connection-editor,
though. "Last Used" column represent timestamp.
