We happen to use neither SFX or Serials Solutions. Our link resolver
allows us to see an almost unadulterated version of the files received
from the vendor.

I just looked at the file in our link resolver admin interface and a raw
file direct from JSTOR, dated 02/09/2010. I can confirm that the load
files from JSTOR contain close dates. Those are probably over-riding
your link resolver's ability to automatically deal with the moving wall.
