This seems like such a simple thing that I'm convinced I must be just missing it somewhere.

Is there a setting or a plugin that will display the last modification date/timestamp of the file you are working on? Perhaps in the status bar or something similar?

No, as far as I can tell this feature isn't implemented and no plugins exist for it.
You can suggest it at Sublime Text's UserEcho forum or, if you're feeling ambitious, make a plugin that adds this functionality.

The SideBarEnhancements package has a statusbar_modified_time option which displays the current file's last modification datetime in the status bar.

The datetime display format can be customised using the statusbar_modified_time_format setting.
