I'm not sure what you mean - is it like this?

Yes, this is the function I meant, but if you change date value and click "OK" without click on "V" icon next to the value, then when you re-edit field odd numbers appear.

Thank you for reporting this issue! I have been able to confirm the issue on:
Platform: Bodhi Linux 2.2 x64

As I've been able to confirm this problem on an earlier release I am changing the version number as version is the earliest version that we can confirm the bug, we use comments to say that the bug exists in newer versions as well.

Marking as:

New (confirmed)
Trivial - doesn't affect the page at all, just showing the number value of the date instead of the date in the "value" field. On the page itself you see the correct date formatting.

Low - doesn't affect professional work at all, furthermore you can still edit the value as a date (ie. change the number to something like 01/01/2012) and it will work fine.
