The bits were originally shown in the wrong order.

Errata 1739 tried to correct this by reversing the bits, but overlooked reversing the bytes.

Section 2.3 says:

   o  Middleboxes [RFC3234] may change Flow properties, such as the
      Differentiated Service Code Point (DSCP) value or the source IP
      address.  If an IPFIX Observation Point is located in the path of
      a Flow before one or more middleboxes that potentially modify
      packets of the Flow, then it may be desirable to also report Flow
      properties after the modification performed by the middleboxes.
      An example is an Observation Point before a packet marker changing
      a packet's IPv4 Type of Service (TOS) field that is encoded in
      Information Element classOfServiceIPv4.  Then the value observed
      and reported by Information Element classOfServiceIPv4 is valid at
      the Observation Point, but not after the packet passed the packet
      marker.  For reporting the change value of the TOS field, the
      IPFIX information model uses Information Elements that have a name
      prefix "post", for example, "postClassOfServiceIPv4".

Notes:

s/ClassOfServiceIPv4/ipClassOfService/ (twice)
s/postClassOfServiceIPv4/postIpClassOfService/ (once)

Also correct another instance of "postClassOfServiceIPv4" in section 5:

OLD
Information Elements with a name having the "post" prefix, for
example, "postClassOfServiceIPv4"
NEW
Information Elements with a name having the "post" prefix, for
example, "postIpClassOfService"

Section 5.9. says:

   Timestamps flowStartSysUpTime and flowEndSysUpTime are relative
   timestamps indicating the time relative to the last (re-
   )initialization of the IPFIX Device.  For reporting the time of the
   last (re-)initialization, systemInitTimeMilliseconds can be reported,
   for example, in Data Records defined by Option Templates.
