Explain Date Time Calendar Behaviors

Why is the behavior of the calendar for the Date Time Picker field such that it seems to randomly pick dates/times far into the future by default rather than say, picking the current date or, if there is a date in the field already, picking the date in the field?  If one isn't paying attention and wants the outage ends date, for my scenario, to be two days after the start date, I could pick that date not realizing that the month was off into the future.

Scenario(s)

Outage Starts field defaults to current date and time.

Outage Ends field has no default.

Create Issue FFSP eTicket (ET) Radio Outage Scheduled

See the following for "Outage Starts" and "Outage Ends" fields:

Select "Calendar"  icon next to "Outage Starts" field to view Data/Time Picker calendar:2.png

Result is a date and time nine weeks in the future on the same weekday.

Select "Calendar"  icon next to "Outage Ends" field to view Data/Time Picker calendar:

Result is the same data and time displayed in the "Outage Starts" field.

Change DTG in "Outage Starts" to something other than that which it displayed on ticket creation. Select "Calendar"  icon next to "Outage Ends" field to view Data/Time Picker calendar:
