Fastlane and Holidays

As many of you are painfully aware, the NSF deadline for theory proposals is this Monday, Feb 19. As you may have also realized, Feb 19 is a federal holiday. According to NSF guidelines, in such an event, the deadline moves to the next working day (i.e the 20th) and I've confirmed that this is a correct interpretation for this deadline.

However, does Fastlane itself know this ? Suppose Fastlane refuses to accept any proposal submitted after Feb 19 (since in principle it has the information on the call and the deadline) ? Can the program manager then override it ?

I wonder if anyone has any experience with this...
