Excellent catch!
Turns out the unit Micron uses the Unicode character U+03BC
But the "micro" SI prefix is the Unicode character U+00B5

They look identical, but this allows the "Micron" unit avoid conflict with the SI prefix.
In the source code, I mistakenly defined the Micron as 1_μm instead of 1_µm (see what I did there?). Even though it looks identical, the second one is the correct definition, as 1 micrometer (with the "Micro" symbol), the other one is using the letter Mu, so it's some base unit nobody ever heard of.
