Not really sure what you're trying to achieve, but below is the list of available BPDBJOBS_COLDEFS you can use in bp.conf:

If you're after the (long) duration, look for ELAPSED & ACTIVEELAPSED

BPDBJOBS_COLDEFS is for you to customize on your bpdbjobs output, such as which column comes first in the listing and the column width, it's more about formatting.

If you just want to get start_time, time_elapsed, and end_date, you can refer to:

http://www.symantec.com/docs/HOWTO72644

So basically from a bpdbjobs command output each entry (job) you look at field #9, #10 & #11.

See my example:

5956,20,3,0,policy1,Open,,client1,1381762955,0000000422,1381763377,.....

1381762955 is the start timestamp, you can make it readable by doing "bpdbm -ctime 1381762955".

Note that field #11 (end time) = #9 (start time) + #10 (time_elapsed).

Hope it helps.
