Believe me when I say the time tracking feature within Jira has caused
more concern within our particular company, which uses a separate
project management tool, than without.

I agree with all of your conclusions and everyone should be made aware
that use of this feature is purely voluntary and musn't be used for
any actual accounting purposes other than personal management practices.
Some may use it intensively, others (more likely) not at all.
