[whatwg] unclear example

In section 2.1 an example is given of the newly introduced attributes,
which has me confused a bit. It concerns the following lines:

<label for="time1"> Preferred delivery time: </label>
<input id="time1" name="time1" type="time" min="08:00" max="17:00"
value="08:00" /> —
<input id="time2" name="time2" type="time" min="08:00" max="17:00"
value="17:00" />

The inputs are given as type="time" which is defined to have the format:
00:00:00.0 however the max and min value are not specified as such,
although in section 2.1.1. it is stated:

"Gives the minimum value (inclusive) of the field, in the format specified
for the relevant type."

So shouldn't it then be:

<input id="time1" name="time1" type="time" min="08:00:00" max="17:00:00"
value="08:00:00" />

Or should I look for the answer in the line "All the numbers must be in
base ten and zero-padded if necessary." so that the UA should take 8:00
and add zeros to it to get the official format?
