I'm trying to use soffice --headless to convert a bunch of old ClarisWorks docs to rtfs. Is there an option to retain the Date/Time Created stamps of the original pre-conversion documents in the metadata of the converted versions?

There is no such option.

But you might create a bug report if a document data is lost on conversion (we either don't import creation time when read that file type, or don't write it to the RTF). That is not about filesystem dates, of course.
