It is, seeing how pretty much everything we're working with nowadays was released after that time. .NET 3.5+ (introducing stuff such as LINQ and EF), .NET Core, Git, many (or all?) front-end frameworks, DevOps and CI/CD, microservices, pretty much anything cloud... Even "old tech" such as SQL and Web API's have evolved (preferring JSON over XML for example).
And not only tech, but methodologies such as Agile and Scrum as well.

I make modern web apps in reasonably modern environments, so yeah, having knowledge of modern tech is most certainly one of my metrics!
If you think these people were any good before 2005, think again by the way. Many I've met were not aware, or did not understand, how to properly apply OOP principles. Oh yeah, and all your logic goes in huge SQL stored procedures, because that's your central unit that all software has access to. NoSQL is a curse word.

Trust me, when I say these people are not good at programming, they're not good at programming. What usually sets them apart is their knowledge of the field and environment (as they've been using and developing it for the past 10+ years) and the long hours they make to make up for their lack of skill, knowledge and interest in (new) tech. Yeah, I've worked with some really bad seniors.
Really great at keeping stuff going and fixing bugs, really frustrating for any new development.

I really hope my career plan won't be to work on obsolete tech Dead | X|
