They should have taken a hint from TNG, which didn't take place exactly 400 years in the future of its broadcast.
I think initially they did, hence D. C. Fontana's line from "Farpoint" that Data graduated "Class of '78."

Though IIRC, in The Making of Star Trek, Roddenberry often used the 23rd Century as a reference point when talking about the future. So it's interesting that it was chosen to be the setting of Star Trek in TWOK.
Which makes the indirect references to the 22nd century and then to a much later time than the 23rd century the more puzzling.
