Seconds counting from where? The epoch? Boot?

The 3 first lines of the log are:

[ 432.065]
X.Org X Server 1.18.3
Release Date: 2016-04-04

So, does the log start 432 seconds after the epoch? Impossible.
Seconds since start of X? Also impossible.
432 seconds, ie, 7.2 minutes after boot? Doubtful. X starts automatically.
Boots stops to ask for the disk password, assume two minutes top to enter
the password, and half a minute more to type the login password. Still, 4
more minutes to account for...

So it has to be milliseconds since the start of X.

No it doesn't. It depends on what happens when a log out from X occurs. If the
DM restarts on log out, 7.2 minutes since boot is totally within reason. I
routinely see numbers of more than 100., 1000., 10000., or even 100000. on
installations, least of which since some settings changes require logging out
and back in to take effect, e.g. an xorg.conf change. Only the first after
would be around 40.

Read the rest of my post, the final calculation assumes seconds since boot.
