The question is whether it still means "end-of-month" even if not stated, due to the underlying law aSitUS quoted, or whether any contract has to completely state the period including that part. I don't think "it's always that way" is a valid contractual argument, although sometimes it can be for very clear "unwritten" standards..
I would say so. If a contract does not specify something than the default set by the Code of Obligations takes precedence. That is exactly the reason for its existence. Nevertheless, the contract parties can mutually agree that it should be interpreted differently. If both are happy the Code of Obligations, even the wording of the contract, is not that relevant.
