Why are all the dates of the system files set to the end of 1969? / Is the clock on my slug set incorrectly, all the files in the root file system are very old?

This is the intended behaviour on a slug with a flash file system root. When the flash file system is created the dates on all the files it contains are set to 0, this corresponds to the last instant in 1969. This means that you can instantly see if a file has been changed.

Actually, the time being 0 means: 1.1.1970 00:00:00 UTC. If the boxes timezone is UTC the files should show this date. Since most likely it is set to something west of this, you get back a few hours into 1969.
