Are you paid per day or hourly?
If you are paid per day then then the extra hours don't matter. They probably use the time sheet for tracking project hours and your cost so just putting in the base level of time, which happens to be the same as the permies is the standard way to go.
Just because something could be the same as a permie it doesn't mean you look like one. It just happens you are booking the same time as them to suit the clients system. The same directive will be for anyone using the system, 3rd party suppliers as well so it's affects everyone. It's a very very small flag and most certainly not one to be rocking the boat with your client over.
Just make sure
you have a checked contract,
you are aware enough of IR35 not to put yourself in
know to keep your main 3 pillars in the clear
keep a folder of evidence of your different pass, meetings you can't attend etc and you'll be fine.
