I do not think you can customise this aspect of org.

In any case, I don't think it would make sense for the headlines in the
date-tree to have time stamps.  The time stamps, for me, belong with
actual entries so that you can manipulate an entry consistently such as
when refiling, for instance.  Having extra time stamps on the headlines
of the tree structure would confuse things, in my opinion.

Depending on how you insert entries into a date-tree, you can try to
ensure that the entries have the relevant time stamps.
