I would assume that because the virtual disk is being backed up and not the Windows Files system that the timestamp wouldn't matter, because the blocks are still changing. But this does leave us concerned and wondering if we should just set this job as a Full Backup each night.

Veeam Backup & Replication work on the block level. So any (block) change in a datastore is backed up. (Only changed blocks)
Timestamps or change times of the files work on a much higher file system level. Veeam doesn´t see this and takes no care about that things.
In case of VMware change block tracking. VMware knows which block on the storage are changed and Veeam read out only this storage blocks and store them (deduplicated and compressed) in it's backup files.
- Files (incl. Timestamps)
- SCSI commands (+ VMware Change block tracking)
- stored blocks
