Actually, 1.20 is work-in-progress (WIP), so there are changes being
made to 1.20 every week or two.  You need to also check the date stamp.

Actually the root filesystem is "recovered" by the kernel when it is first
mounted, so e2fsck should always say "clean" unless it has an error or it
reached the maximum mount count.  On the other hand, /home is recovered
by e2fsck.

I have not yet converted my root filesystem to "ordered" from "data"
journalling.  I've only converted some other filesystems to do testing.
It looks like I need to do a new backup and then convert my root filesystem
to "ordered" and see if I get the same problem.
