Indeed I missed the documentation of seq.Date that refers to
seq.POSIXt. Many thanks for pointing this out.
Still I would be tempted to count back the day into the same month
instead of counting forward. But this behavior seems intentional and
documented so no need to question it.

The problem I'm trying to solve is this.
for a date d and an integer m
Using "month" first advance the month without changing the day: if
this results in an invalid day of the month, it is counted backward
into the same month.
so nearly the same behavior as seq.Date except
add.month("2020-08-31",1) ==> 2020-09-30
add.month("2020-08-01",1) ==> 2020-09-01
