While befuddled, Kit said:

The convenience provided by these functions is decidedly less than
the ability to apply such a format to a variable measuring elapsed
time: that is, to convert a time interval of 15432.2501 into
432:06:00:08 for display.

Ouch! That should be an interval of 432.2501, that is, 432 days and a bit more than 6 hours.
