This depends on the file system being used. Microseconds are not uncommon.

There is a --config-option command line option which can pass any config
file option on the command line without requiring changes to files on disk.
You should be able to force the use-commit-times option like this:

 svn --config-option config:miscellany:use-commit-times=yes

This option exists in Apache Subversion. The Jenkins plugin uses SVNKit which
is a reimplementation of Subversion written in Java, so it might not work.
The options are usually compatible, though, so it's worth a try.
