It is expected behavior. See

"Time stamps are updated at various times and for various reasons. The
only guarantee about a file time stamp is that the file time is
correctly reflected when the handle that makes the change is closed."

The difference (in contrast with earlier versions) you might be
experiencing with Firebird 3 has likely to do with the new database
linger functionality which will keep the file open for a while when
there are no connections to that database. See ""Linger" Database
Closure for Superserver" in the Firebird 3 release notes.
