Question World Rotation vs Orbital Period

I've recently detailed a world orbiting a M2 V star and have run into a conundrum I hope someone here can help me puzzle out.

The planet orbits in the star's habitable zone (orbit 0, or 0.1 AU). Using CTs Grand Survey by DPG, I generated an orbital period of just over 6 standard days and a rotational period of over 40 standard days.

Does this mean the planet's effective (ie. according to the guy standing on the surface) local day is around the same length of a local year? Or is the 960+ hour day the experience from the surface?
