The output of this function is the input to the TS_DECOMPRESS function.

Though the input argument type is td_anytype, the algorithm for this function only supports TIME and TIMESTAMP data types. Each value in TIME and TIMESTAMP (for example, year, month, or day) is compressed into the minimum possible bits individually and then concatenated.
