Did Thrive Change Its Formulation? Rotala Butterfly seems to have the wrong data.

I've been trying to match the Elemental data on my bottle of thrive with the data from the Rotala Butterfly calculator.

I tried dosing 1ml in 1 litre in the calculator.
Nothing is matching.

For example my bottle of thrive says elemental Nitrogen is at 2.56% that would correspond to 25.6ppm of N or 113ppm of NO3- in 1 litre of water.

The calculator shows 30ppm N and 132.5ppm NO3.

Boron is way off. On the bottle 0.008% which should be 0.08ppm or 0.45ppm of Boric Acid. The calculator lists 2.3ppm for Boron.
