Not quite.

Last modified time is recorded to within two seconds (FAT squeezes the
seconds into a 5-bit field, which allows packing a time into two bytes).

Other times are recorded with different granularity, sometimes
depending on the OS/version used to make the change to the file

And of course FAT has no concept of time zones; everything is local
time, all the time.

has some of the gory details.
