Could /etc/security be changing the time on setuid files?

Could /etc/security be changing the timestamps and perms on some of my
setuid files?  I'm getting a reports of file time changes from /etc/security
and the new times were corresponding with the 0130 run of /etc/daily. I've
run the script twice this morning and this is the output:

Checking setuid/setgid files and devices:
Setuid changes:
-r-sr-xr-x  1  root  bin   24576  May  13  10:26:56  2002  /usr/bin/su
-r-sr-xr-x  1  root  bin   24576  May  13  10:46:05  2002  /usr/bin/su
-r-sr-xr-x  1  root  auth  16384  May  13  10:26:56  2002  /usr/libexec/auth/login_krb4-or-pwd
-r-sr-xr-x  1  root  auth  16384  May  13  10:46:05  2002  /usr/libexec/auth/login_krb4-or-pwd

The last time was 09:24 on Saturday, when I first looked into the problem 
and ran daily by hand, and before that the time was 01:30:27.

I'm running OpenBSD sparc on a Sparc 2. 

     # uname -a
     OpenBSD sparky 3.0 GENERIC#47 sparc

I've installed a couple of ports but nothing that I think would cause this?
