Yes, FreePascal does such a thing. And it is causing me headaches
already. I introduced a helper script to fix some of the issues called
fp-fix-timestamps¹. It isn't great, but it does the job so far for
multiple packages. If strip-nondeterminism could support ppu files as
well, that would be awesome (I never realized that it could).
