You can see the f.32 both in the view finder and on top of the camera.
Ok, well then we will all live our lives with a mystery for the ages... Thanks guys..
Anybody can get software to make exif data say anything you want.
Why would anybody lie about their aperture setting? That's an odd thing to insinuate.

A digital image file is just a collection of bits/bytes with a container (filename).
The internal structure is meaningful only to programs who abide by and agree to some defined structure. Other programs may interpret the content differently, may allow manipulation of the content totally without regard to the conventions/structures used by other programs.
A "Binary Editor" can manipulate any contents of any file - though the operator generally needs intimate knowledge / documentation of the target file's defined structure to make intended changes as opposed to just mucking up the bits.
There are also programs which specifically are designed to understand and support manipulation of EXIF data, including date information.
Back in the FILM days, image content could be manipulated in the darkroom..not much different today.
