First, there's two types of date held in Jira - Date and Date/Time. They have different content, and are handled differently internally. They're actually stored in the same way (a Date is a Date/Time with the time set to 0.00)

That might explain two of the differences (created/updated are working because they're date/time, but the others look wrong as they're date only), but it doesn't explain what you're seeing in release date and start date. To me it actually looks like you aren't exporting Dates, but strings. Jira doesn't know that they're strings with dates in them.

Could you check the custom field types for Release date and Start date (and go-no date)? Are they date, date/time or string?
