No, I'm saying that the intention of dropframe timecode is to drop (precisely) 108 frames per hour from a source that hitherto ran at 30fps.
30 x 1000 / 1001 is not the right formula for achieving 108 dropped frames per hour.
30 x 999 / 1000 is the correct formula.
I don't use 29.97 NDF but as far as I can tell, 30 x 999 x 1000 would still be the correct pulldown formula.
I've never encountered 30000/1001 in my own timecode workings but as I say, I'm not in a region that uses dropframe or 29.97.
