Yeah, the documentation definitely needs refining.

{{{date}}} / {{{date(FORMAT)}}} [FORMAT is optional] - Inserts the #+DATE keyword value; optionally formats as per FORMAT (Refer `format-time-string` function for syntax.)
{{{time(FORMAT)}}} - Inserts the current time stamp as per the FORMAT 
{{{modification-time(FORMAT)}}} - Inserts modification time of the file being exported as per the FORMAT

Does it?  I count four macros and three references.  It's not clear to
me how they map to one another.  How should I read this?

All the best,
