40hrs * 60 minutes * 60 seconds = 144000

I'm not sure if that can be changed.

of course, it converts the weeks, days, hours to seconds for consistent exporting. Thank You

You can use the Better Excel Plugin to do this conversion for you. You can both use an Excel formula and Excel's cell formatting for this. 

If you export time values frequently, it will save you from a lot of repetitive work.
