The options for my 4.4 install listed the package, but no date/time stamp.

rpm -qi centos-release showed dates well beyond when I knew I installed 
the system.

I performed a check of /boot and discovered memtest86+-1.70 with a date 
most likely when the system truly installed.

I'm looking forward to other responses.  A good question!
