Consider the code below

x <- 1:1000
quantile(x, .975)

The value returned is 975 (the 97.5th percentile), but the name has been shortened to "98%" due to the digits option. Is this intended? I would have expected the name to also be "97.5%" here. Alternatively, the returned value might be 980 in order to match the name of "98%".
