Lightroom: Exported video using "Date - Filename" uses file timestamp and not capture date as it should

When exporting video files, renaming the files using "Date - Filename" (or choosing custom and any date attribute) seems to be using the date of the file on disk (creation or modification date) rather than the capture date of the video. For example, you caputre a video on Christmas day, import it, let's say on the 10th of February... if the file on disk has the date "10th of February" the exported video will get renamed "20150210-filename.mp4" instead of "20141225-filename.mp4"

Unfortunately, LR's handling of video metadata is incomplete and buggy. For example, see this topic:
