Happens in Google sheets as well. Enter "10-12" to indicate pages 10 and 12 and you get Dec 10th or 12th Oct depending on your locale.

Incidentally did they take into account locales e.g. MAI would presumibly be mangled if users Locale was set to French so when nameing genes you would need to avoid all of this:
