Prompt 'select_account' returns 'expires_in' instead of 'expires_at'

Background
Every time a user tries to authorize using Google social connection, we want to allow the user to pick from all Google accounts he has.

Problem
This answer explains that if we use auth.params: { prompt: 'select_account'} the user can always pick his desired Google account. However, a subsequent call to a callback URL replaces expires_at with expires_in for all connections (database and social ones too). This an example of a callback: /callback#access_token=…&expires_in=7200

I know we can calculate expires_at from expires_in according to this doc.

Question
How can we forse expires_at with auth.params: { prompt: 'select_account'}?

It was my fault. Auth0 is returning always expires_in. We just internally stored expires_at.
