Following is a response from Senior DHS staff member, Tom Pullum:

My strategy for resolving this kind of issue is to look at the wording of the original questions. I went to the Final Report on the Ethiopia 2016 survey. The men's questionnaire begins on page 469. The questions about tobacco use are 811-815. The variable labels may not be clear, but it appears to me that ALL of these questions are about current use. I believe you can establish a link between each of the questions and each of the variables, and that should clarify the time period they refer to. Hope this resolves the issue.
