Look, the TSA loves its little acronyms and cute sayings. VIPR, SPOT, etc.

3.4-1-1 doesn't sound as cute and cuddly to the TSA as 3-1-1. They likely don't want to spend the money to fix their signs.

Besides, it would also admit that the TSA is wrong, and we all know the TSA never admits making an error.

The closest thing I've seen to a correct sign was a hand-written one in Philadelphia's D Concourse during the construction last year, taped to a temporary wall saying it's 3.4 oz.
