- Old Spock wouldn't necessarily have known what year he was in, and at 130+ years old, may not be able to tell a 25 year old from a 35 year old on sight. He does mention how many years in the future he is from, but that is after he initiates mind contact with Kirk.
Except he meets CADET Kirk, and a Kirk younger than when he started captaining the enterprise by a staggering 8-9 years. Old Spock would never assume that a very young Cadet Kirk is the captain of the Enterprise and then be surprised when he isn't.
Once again: We don't know when Kirk Prime became Enterprise captain, or captain of another ship. It's generally assumed (assumption = not canon) that Kirk became a captain to when he was 30, and I can forgive Spock for mistaking a 25 year old for a 30 year old. Easily.
