More precisely, they show when you started the session in which the
code is executing. On other words, if you have a session A, and then
start session B, session A's log will show session A's time, not session
B's, even though session B was the last one started.

I think you mean "current data step or PROC", not "program". Most
people, in my experience, use "program" to refer to an entire SAS
session or job step.
