{*$LastModified} is the time formatted according to the $TimeFmt variable.

If you use {(ftime fmt="%F" "{*$LastModified}")}, note the quotes, the markup 
expression will try to parse (guess) the timestamp from the string, but this 
in some cases will not work, because the format is not standard, or is not in 

You can use {(ftime fmt="%F" "@{*$LastModifiedTime}")} instead, note @.

{*$LastModifiedTime} contains the number of seconds since 1970–01–01 00:00, 
and preceded with @, the markup expression will be parsed without problems to 
the real timestamp.
