Not a bug, the result is correct.

Python floats are binary floating point values, not decimal. 0.3368655's actual value is exactly:

0.336865499999999984392928809029399417340755462646484375

so when rounding to six decimal places, the seventh decimal place is a four, not five, and it rounds down to 0.336865. To be precise, it rounds down to:

0.336865000000000025526247782181599177420139312744140625
