Need a sanity check

Been trying to wrap my head around this all day. In my mind, both of these setups should yield the same result. But the first one gives me a completely nonsense results I can’t explain. Not sure if it’s a bug or my brain is too small to comprehend the logic. I’m hesitant to file a bug report, because it tends to be the latter.

I’m scheduling an API Workflow in a regular workflow.

Variant 1. I’m scheduling the date by referring back to the created Thing. MSRPeriod is a numerical value. This gives me a completely nonsense number of days.

Variant 2. Here I’m instead doing a search for the Thing that was created in step5, by searching for it’s unique ID. This gives me the expected result.

But I can’t for the life of me understand how they are different. I’m referring back to the exact same entry in the database. I’m sure there’s a perfectly rational explanation for this that I’m not seeing.
