Usage of '*' in AF Analytics - Event triggered vs Periodic

Something I recently learned. In PI AF Analysis if the '*' is used to get the time, it doesn't produce the same results when you choose event triggered calculation vs. periodic.

 

For event triggered analytics, '*' returns the last time your input tag received a value and this causes incorrect evaluation if it was assumed '*' would return the current server time.

 

If the analysis was configured to run periodically, '*' will return the current server time.

 

I was wondering if this is the desired behavior or something they missed.
