In the OOo file format, we store date values in ISO 8601 format, like

The question is not how to store but how do you interpret in the
first place.  When you import a cell with the value '35600' but no
obvious date format.  How do you know that it is a date ?  When it
gets fed into a function that expects dates you need to map that
value to a date.
