Converting null Time from SQL results in not blank value?

I pull in a Time field from SQL and then run through the conversion to make it readable in my app with code like this:

 

"OutTime",
First(ForAll(MatchAll(SignoutTime,"PT(?:(?<hours>\d+)H)?(?:(?<minutes>\d+)M)?(?:(?<seconds>\d+)S)?"),
        Time(Value(hours),Value(minutes),Value(seconds)))).Value,

 

This is inside an AddColumns function so it creates a new column named OutTime with a clean version of SignoutTime retrieved from SQL.

Then if I run

IsBlank(OutTime) it returns false

IsEmpty(OutTime) it returns false

IsBlank(SignoutTime) it returns true

If I create a label that displays OutTime it shows nothing and appears to be blank. I don't understand what is happening? Can anyone help me understand?

Thanks but that doesn't really explain I think. I am not trying to patch a null. I don't know what the value is that comes out of that code because it isn't blank or empty but at the same time if displayed in a label shows nothing?
