Bug? or misuse?

I seem to find a behaviour that I cannot understand.  What I do:

mss at despair$ gpg --gen-key

As result I get a pair of keys for Test User.  I should note that I specified
2y (2 years) as a period of validness for this key.

mss at despair$ gpg --edit-key "Test User"

Why it shows "never" for date of expiry?
