When I run a scan for new and modified files in my iTunes library,
the modified files have junk numbers in the "year" field!

For example:   2008-11-11T:08:00:00Z

Another example:    2016-08-18T07:00:00Z

These junk numbers display in track information in the right panel
and in the Edit Tags panel.

Those aren't junk numbers. They may not be what you're expecting, but the numbers represent a date and the time. The date and time of what, I don't know, but it's not the current date. Could it be the timestamp from when you added it to itunes? Have you check the tags in itunes?
Download the latest MusicBee v3.4 patch from here.

iTunes just displays the year!    Not the month or day!
I don't see any additional junk data on iTunes!
I'm using version 10.6.3

The extra data isn't on all the songs.
I scanned iTunes the first time and all was normal.
It was only later when I modified the iTunes songs
and scanned them into MB that this junk string
appeared!

Okay!   I understand it's not junk!
But it doesn't look clean.

Thank you Steven!
I did that!   I put in year (yyyy) and it worked!

Thank you too to kamizon for his insight!
