I am currently considering revamping my channel by making some of my older videos (dating back to March 2014) private/unlisted. If I later change my mind and make them public, will the publication date change? I don't necessarily want to have my old videos look as if they've just been uploaded. Thanks!

Great question, also was wondering about that as at times I post the videos in advance as private videos and then make them public by publishing.

No. You can't change the time and date. But when you want to public your video you can use schedule post. That's why youtube can show your video post time as the scheduled post time.
