No, FFS (ufs) is not fixed. FFS2 (ufs2) is fixed but not FFS...

Linux now reports OpenBSD FFS (ufs) systems just like ext2 systems:

ufs filesystem being mounted at /obsd supports timestamps until 2038 (0x7fffffff)

(To get this message on Linux the disk needs to be mounted R/W which requires
the kernel to contain CONFIG_UFS_FS_WRITE=y )

Here is a OpenBSD script to show the issue with timestamps:
#! /bin/sh
set -x
touch -t 203801181234 y2k38-test1
ls -lT                y2k38-test1
touch -t 203901201234 y2k38-test2
ls -lT                y2k38-test2
When you see a good move, look for a better one.
