I haven't looked at your vmod to comment but the TIME + DURATION issue
has been properly fixed in commit
cc513fdc6cc098fcdc378af6ec80959a5c744054 so now it's possible to do:

set = now + 1s;

That will return a RFC date.
[1] could be achieved with:

set = now + std.duration(regsub(resp.http.cache-control,
".* maxage=([0-9]*).*", "\1s"), 10s);
