2. There are ptest available [2] to validate if the Y2038 problem

3. Support for running ptests mentioned in point 2. is already
available in the poky repository [3].
I just ran these tests in (32 bit) qemux86 on top of poky master (e.g.
no magic glibc flags), and they all passed. Do they need to be ran
after setting the date to the 'post-2038 future' to reveal the issues
and produce failures?
Yes. You need to run them with adjusted date:

date +'%Y-%m-%d %T' -s "2038-01-19 03:14:07"
