Strange scaling of Y axis when having absolute numbers

Greetings all,
I am a user here and have no access to the grafana panel_s configuration, but I think this behaviour is strange so I want to report it here and if someone agrees, maybe make it a bug.

In one specific graph, I am presenting some number of records. it is an absolute number, no comma places. the lowest number is 9860, the highest number is 9872.

However, grafana displays this as “k”. And moreover, it adds more comma places than there are actual digits, and it invents a “,5” which in reality is not there. So the axis labellings read “9.86000 K” to “9.87250 K” which is questionable at least.
