The Nepal DHS datasets use the Nepali lunar calendar to format the CMC, which makes moot the standard conversion formula. I believe the Ethiopia surveys have a similar issue. It would be helpful for me as well if someone could share the Nepal-specific conversions.

Having the CMC formatted this way is of no consequence as long as you're not interested in an absolute date (e.g. survey year) but in a relative length of time, where you'd subtract one CMC from another.
