To get the last time the resource was crawled in SharePoint Online, you need to submit a ticket with Office 365 support.

For your issue, it might got instable search results for attachments in SharePoint Online. You can try to use the LinkOfficeChild managed property to show the attachment url.

Here is a similar post for your reference: Attachments Search O365

Also i can see the attachments in edit mode whats the point of using the LinkOffice Child property? Please elaborate...
