It seems to work for me:
"xml" should have 0s, so now.
"rss" should have 1h.
"png" should have 1M.
$ curl -s -i http://127.0.0.1/a.xml | grep '^Content-Type\|^Expires'
Expires: Tue, 04 Sep 2018 12:16:40 GMT
$ curl -s -i http://127.0.0.1/a.rss | grep '^Content-Type\|^Expires'
Expires: Tue, 04 Sep 2018 13:16:41 GMT
$ curl -s -i http://127.0.0.1/a.png | grep '^Content-Type\|^Expires'
Expires: Thu, 04 Oct 2018 12:16:42 GMT

Can you do a test like the above, and show the Content-Type that is
received as well?
"A .php file" could be anything.
Good luck with it,
