It's still horrible English :-( A date hasn't got a result, much
less one that includes a daylight savings time adjustment period.
We should rewrite the entire paragraph. Maybe
Days that contain a daylight savings time adjustment are not 24
hours, but typically 23 or 25 hours. This change creates a
conceptual distinction between intervals of "so many days"
and intervals of "so many hours". Adding '1 day' to a timestamp
now gives the same local time on the next day even if a daylight
savings time adjustment occurs between, whereas adding '24 hours'
will give a different local time when this happens. For example:
