	It's there, under 'THE LEASE DECLARATION' (dhcp.leases(5))

        weekday year/month/day hour:minute:second

        The weekday is present to make it easy for a human to tell  
when a lease
        expires - it’s specified as a number from zero to six, with  
zero  being
        Sunday.   The  day  of week is ignored on input.  The year is  
        with the century, so it should generally  be  four  digits   
except  for
        really long leases.  The month is specified as a number  
starting with 1
        for January.  The day of the month is likewise specified  
starting  with
        1.   The hour is a number between 0 and 23, the minute a  
number between
        0 and 59, and the second also a number between 0 and 59.
