Preserve table creation timestamp after reorg-finsished using admin_move_table procedure (online table move)

Following Knowledge Center,
we perform table reorg using admin_move_table . The issue is, after run admin_move_table command, the original table creation timestamp is not preserved, which is a different behavior comparing with classic offline and online inplace reorg both of which preserve the table creation timestamp in the system catalogs. Also other industry RDBMS preserve the table creation timestamp after online table move operation.

    Could this behavior (resetting or preserving a table's CREATE_TIME) be controlled by a setting in the options parameter of ADMIN_MOVE TABLE? If I use AMT in Db2 11.5 to move an old table that was originally created in, say, Db2 9.5, it would be helpful for CREATE_TIME to be updated so I know that the table is new and no longer has any legacy structural issues to resolve.
