The event registrant constituency is added to constituents based on the day the registration was added in CRM, not the date of the event

On a constituent record, the Event registrant constituency's date from value reflects the day that the event registration was added in CRM, not the date of the event.
This is the intended functionality of the event registrant constituency. From the Constituent guide, “When a constituent is registered for an event, the constituent receives the event registrant constituency.” The constituency start date is the date they registered for the event, which is the date it was added in CRM because event registrations cannot be backdated like revenue.

Note: There is a suggestion on the Idea Bank to add functionality allowing the event registrant constituency to be edited and to allow event registrations to be backdated.

Steps to Duplicate

1) Create a new constituent.
2) Using the new constituent, add a registration for an event that has already taken place.
3) Add a payment for the event registration, using the date of the event as the revenue date.
4) Go to the constituent record > Personal Info tab > Constituencies sub-tab > Notice that the Donor constituency's Date from correctly reflects the revenue date but the event registrant constituency's Date from is today's date.
