I do mdm themes (your login screen) for the new mdm coming out and run both analog and digitals on them all through a java script, so in short of that long one lol no it's no bug you can just pretty much add a clock anywhere, all do not run under one thing like time/date settings.
Just so you know, in case you don't and to give a bit more understanding, menu and panel are cinnamons' same as desklets, extenstions, applets. it's all run under Cinnamon shell. the frame for your windows (browser, file windows, programs and such) use gtk for the inside of the window stuff and depending on what your using, (cinnamon, uses metacity) for the outerframe, the border around the window, xfce, and the rest uses their own instead of metacity, all depends on what your using, but by the sounds of it your using metacity for the frame.
Glad its working for you now
