Question about parse-time-string and date-to-time

A conundrum:

parse-time-string accepts a string representing a date, and parses it
into a list of time elements, with nil for the unknowns.

date-to-time calls parse-time-string and passes the result straight to
encode-time, to produce a time value.

encode-time accepts series of time elements, and raises an error if any
of them are nil.

I might be missing something, but I don't see how date-to-time could
ever work. Wouldn't it always have to replace the nils with zeros before
passing the result to encode time?
