Job search workload

As I understand manual this request gives jobs with workload < 10h/per week;200&c2=Web%20Programming&t=Hourly&wl=0&fb=4.0-5.0&dp=01-09-2013&st=Open

But jobs hours_per_week and op_engagement tags in answer looks like not filtered at all. If I change to wl=20 filtering works right - Part Time: 10-30 hrs/week. Why so?

Here from man:
wl - hours_per_week(Hours per Week)

This parameter can only be used when searching Hourly jobs. These numbers are a little arbitrary, so follow the following parameters in order to successfully use this parameter:

As Needed < 10 Hours/Week = '0'
Part Time: 10-30 hrs/week = '20'
Full Time: 30+ hrs/week = '40'
