Why would Transaction with endswith option return incorrect duration?

Following query with Transaction without endswith

host=phenix  ("Scheduler started" OR "Scheduler stopped" OR "Restarting Protocol" OR "Stopping Protocol"  OR "Protocol complete. Process") | transaction date_month date_mday  startswith=("Restarting" OR "started")| stats sum(duration) AS dur by date_mday date_month| eval durInHr=dur/3600

returns

date_mday ____________ date_month ________________ dur ____________ durInHr

30 ____________ april ____________ 34143 ____________ 9.484167

When added endswith option:

host=phenix  ("Scheduler started" OR "Scheduler stopped" OR "Restarting Protocol" OR "Stopping Protocol"  OR "Protocol complete. Process")  endswith="stopped" | transaction date_month date_mday  startswith=("Restarting" OR "started")| stats sum(duration) AS dur by date_mday date_month| eval durInHr=dur/3600

returns

date_mday ____________ date_month ________________ dur ____________ durInHr

30 ____________ april ____________ 126135 ____________ 35.037500

I was hoping to get smaller duration using endswith, which is not the case here.
