--since and --until check their arguments against "commit date" while
the format string you're passing to --pretty displays the "author date".
These two are different, because a commit might have both the author
and committer.  In the supposedly most common case, when you run
`git commit` in your local repository to to commit the changes you've
prepared and staged manually, the committer and the author are the
same, and the dates are the same, too.  But they do not have to be the
same: the classic case when they're not is applying a patch / patch
series prepared by, say, `git format-patch`.  Cherry-picking is another
example.  In these cases, the author is whoever actually provided the
piece of code (authored it) and the committer is whoever applied
(integrated) the work of the author.

I'd recommend you to get the SHA-1 name of that commit (add %h to your
format string) and then run `git show` on that name to see what are the
headers in that commit.
