O yes,
I see.
But can't you use jhead to put an Exiv header
with the correct time stamp in the jpg file?
I used
jhead -mkexif -ds2016:12:08 roaarrh.jpg
which set the exif Date to Thu Dec 8, 2016
and which was correctly imported by shotwell
and inserted in the Thu Dec 8, 2016 event.

Of course you can.

But if you have a bunch of photos it seems better to name them with the
date in the file name, and have a script adjust the exif data on all of
them, as Brian suggested.

An alternative script would use the current directory to obtain the date
and adjust the exif to match.
