Relative date slicer is not returning the indicated date range

Its been brought to my attention that the indicated date range on a relative date slicer is not what is being returned in the date table. The screenshot below shows the anomaly.

This only appears when using relative months. If I set a relative day, week or year the correct date range is returned.

I found this reference from the documentation and I'm wondering if this has something to do with it.

Hi @SteveD 

As you saw in offical document , it depends on the time in UTC . Unless you are in the UTC time zone, you and your colleague must account for the time offset you experience. Of course, you can also implement it through DAX EOMONTH(), returning the data of the previous 6 months .
