FWIW, I think it is misleading, given the phrasing in the text:

"Start exponentially approaching the target value at the given time ..."

If the phrase were reversed:

"At the given time, start exponentially approaching the target value "

that might be clearer.

IMHO, either variant would be acceptable if the text and method name had
"at" replaced with "from".

kind regards,
