timer resolution in ramp rate

I set up a timer program on a 3216 controller. I set the Timer Configuration to Dwell, the Timer Resolution to Hours, Threshold to 1, End Type to SP2, Ramp Rate to 0.08, and a Dwell time of 60 hours.
Everything worked well up to the end of the dwell, when the ramp for the change of setpoint was 0.08 units per minute, not per hour. It seems clear that the ramp rate is units per minute or hour according to how the resolution was set, but no.
I am using a Timer model, not a program model, and my best source of information is the Engineering Handbook, page 1-76. But this is confusing as to whether it is referring to the program or the timer model.
