I've tried using "hints" (feint displays of the numbers you will get if you don't enter anything) to see if that's nicer than putting the numbers in "properly". Let me know what you think.

I think populating them is better. Very often you do not want to change/input all fields, but only one or two, e.g. seconds, or frames. Having the other fields populated with the current playhead position allows this much faster.

Would also be nice to have <TAB> move between hh:mm:ss:ff fields.

Maybe you can give it a try? I don't want to tell you how the current version behaves, so that we can see if it's intuitive :)

Tabbing between fields works for me... does it not work on macOS?
