Have you considered RTFM?

I have, and it was a genuine question. I guess I've just been lucky enough to have never come across a situation where the distinction has bitten me in the butt or where I've noticed, in all honesty.

Well, this would be one of those times.  You can't do simple math like $now - $last with the value returned by microtime().  You need to use microtime(true) for that.

For example:

<?php 

$last = microtime();
sleep(5);
$now = microtime();

$diff = $now - $last;
printf("%0.4f seconds have passed", $diff);

One might expect since the script sleeps for 5 seconds to get a result like 5.xxxx seconds have passed but what you actually get is:

Notice: A non well formed numeric value encountered in W:\expired.php on line 7

Call Stack:
    0.0002     391984   1. {main}() W:\expired.php:0


Notice: A non well formed numeric value encountered in W:\expired.php on line 7

Call Stack:
    0.0002     391984   1. {main}() W:\expired.php:0

0.0044 seconds have passed

Due to how microtime returns it's result $diff would never be greater than 1, and could potentially be negative.

I never understood the use for the default microtime() and even less understood why it is the default, and always pass the true argument to it.

$timeFloat = microtime(true);
$timeString = microtime();
var_dump($timeFloat);
var_dump($timeString);

$p=explode(' ', $timeString);
var_dump($p[1]+$p[0]);

float(1606594262.3616)
string(21) "0.36156100 1606594262"
float(1606594262.3616)
