My choice of date format not being used in admin


In the WP settings, ive set my prefered date format like this:

But when i look at posts and pages, it does not reflect that at all:

It is not intuitive for me to glance data in this format. How can i make it look like what i told it to?

And why is it even a setting, if its not shown here?

I assume its probably used elsewhere instead, but this is just weird to me.

  1. The backend does not change (afaik) but where the date is used on pages/posts it will show your selected format.
