Many thanks to many private contributors. We do not have Seagate evidence,
but it seems the true explanation is the following one :

Date Code Shape: YYWWD
* YY: fiscal year, beginning on the 1st Saturday of July YY-1
* WW: fiscal weeks from 1st Saturday of July YY-1
* D: days from the beginning of week WW (weeks run from Saturday to Friday)

An illustrated example is to be find at the following URL:
