Is there a law regarding whether or not it is appropriate to have salaried employees punching in and out with a time clock?

Depends

It is not per se illegal to have hourly employees punch in and out for purposes of tracking attendance. What the employer does with the data, however, may be illegal. A salaried employee may be eligible for overtime even if otherwise exempt if, for example, he or she is docked pay for not working a full day. Nothing prevents an employer from using the data to discipline otherwise exempt employees for not working hard enough or long enough hours, though, as long as there is no wage docking --
