As far as I can see: the EPSG database has Coordinate Frame Rotation 
values in microradian, see: 

If one reverts the sign, converts to arc seconds and prints the result 
with "%.15g" format, one ends up with what the values are now, e.g.
rX = 1.9342 microradian => -0.398957388243134 arc seconds

The result does indeed look a bit like having some overprecision.
