Wrong last.week stats?

I love the last.week feature, and i check it out every week. This week, however, i'm seeing stats that are pretty far off from what i was expecting.

First, here are my stats:

Yes, i usually listen to a lot of soundtracks, but this week... not so much. I was expecting rock music taking #1. But let's see, here's a screenshot of my last week's artists:

Wouldn't you expect rock as my top tag?

Out of these 18 artists, only Darren Korb (#6), Alexander Brandon (#9), and Dixon/Stein (#15) make soundtracks, the rest are pretty much all rock. And these 18 artists make up 502 scrobbles combined (out of 787 scrobbles for the entire week), so even if the rest were all soundtrack artists (which they're not), rock should still take #1.

You can check out the whole list here: https://www.last.fm/user/rotane/library/artists?from=1547766000&to=1548370800

I'm just curious how last.week gets its tags, or how it calculates them to come to these results.

Does the system perchance ONLY look at 18 January (as it says so in the screenshot, incidentally), rather than the whole week? Because, yes, then soundtracks would be my #1 tag. But then it wouldn't be an overview of the whole week anymore. A bug perhaps?
