A little more than that. E.g. the org-mode speadsheet uses calc.
Summing cells which display percentages like 10% and 90%, one expects
the result to be 100% rather than 1. Here the uniform display of
percentages is significant, I would say.
Curiosity lead me to check the same operation on libreoffice and gnumeric.
They both adhere to the expected.
