He's "testing". And instead of just saying that, he expanded on it so the "invoice line" says something.

The 16 hours is to be considered relative to the overall project. For a project that say lasts 2 weeks (i.e "8-10 man-days"), then 2 days "wrapping up and testing", is not unusual.

"Testing", can involve multipl phases, depending on the size and complexity. I won't bore you, but they all have a place: unit testing, integrating testing, system testing, user acceptance testing. And frankly, when it starts to feel I spend more time filling time sheets, then I start to "lump things" on the report.

Or, perhaps you think he should have gotten it "all right" the first time. Software development doesn't work that way when you're trying for the best overall solution. Think Boeing.
It was only in wine that he laid down no limit for himself, but he did not allow himself to be confused by it.
