Date and Time Conundrum

Question here and I do not see this has been discussed. Forgive me as I am a first timer.
Suppose iPhone is a 12 or 13.
So here's the question:

In an iphone, you can change the date and time manually. I know that when you change the date and time, any photos and videos you take for that day will go into a roll with the date you switched to, on your phone. For example, if it is September 9th, 2022, and you change your sate to May 22, 2022, and then go and take phtotos that day, those photos will save to a roll under that date >> May 22, 2022.

My question is, if the phone date is changed back to, today's date, for example, is there a way to determine if the date was changed in the first place?

Is there a way to verify if the photos taken were really taken on May 22, 2022?

Is there a log of some sort that can be accessed to determine if the phone's date was changed and then reverted back to current date?

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
