The broker and client don't "agree" on timeouts, the broker will send
the idle timeout value it wants the client to honor, and the client will
send it's requirements to the broker.  By default the broker Idle
timeout is set to 30s so it will request the client to send a heartbeat
at half that interval.

You should start capturing some frame traces between client and broker
which should give you some more clarity on what is going on.
