Does the `dateTime()` Function in GROQ Require the `Datetime` or `Date` Data Types?

does anyone know if the
dateTime()
function in GROQ requires the
Datetime
data type, or can it be used with just the
Date
type? I’m getting a null response trying to run the following query
*[_type == "exhibition"]{ "dateTIme": dateTime(startDate) }
where startDate is a
Date
type.
I’m trying to compare two
date
in order to return a specific document within a certain range of dates

It looks like
dateTime
only accepts RFC3339 format strings like:
1985-04-12T23:20:50.52Z
. I was able to get it to work if I did this though:
dateTime(<date-field> + 'T00:00:00Z')

There's so much GROQ can do that it's easy to forget stuff 😅
