The only duration Splunk uses for data management is the frozen period - ie how long does data remain searchable in Splunk before it is archived or deleted.

The amount of "time" data stays in hot/warm is based on either size, or the number of buckets (not duration)

See the following for info on how to query for frozen durations:

The best place to check for your index settings is your index definitions.
- on a stand alone indexer, check the indexes.conf on the indexer (you may have to look in multiple apps) $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/appname/[local|default]/indexes.conf
- on an indexer cluster, check the indexes.confs on the cluster master in $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/master-apps/[_cluster|yourapp]/[default|local]/indexes.conf
