the "Last refreshed"  data has not a lot of meaning. All it means that the Power BI service has successfully refreshed the partitions, but it has no idea if the data in the partitions is actually updated.  It will happily refresh old data over and over.

 

Find  a suitable datetime field in your actual data (like the last order date) and use that instead.
