Chekov said he was from the late 20th century, and never gave the exact year.

Khan's statement in TWOK of be from 200 years in the past (okay this is a stretch) might be from no one ever correcting what Kirk first told him.
Sorry, but Khan himself did give the year. I initially forgot that myself, but have since been put straight.

Do you mean he never told you the tale? To amuse your Captain? No? Never told you how the Enterprise picked up the Botany Bay, lost in space in the year nineteen hundred and ninety-six, myself and the ship's company in cryogenic freeze?
Then a few lines later in the same scene:
On Earth, ...two hundred years ago, ...I was a prince, ...with power over millions.
