The documentation doesn't have such an option, but shows an example
which uses exaclty Davids code:

\ifnum\value{datemonth}<10 0\fi
\ifnum\value{dateday}<10 0\fi

But I don't quite see why one need a package for this. 

\the\year-\ifnum\month<10 0\fi\the\month-\ifnum\day<10 0\fi\the\day

works fine.
