Duration next turn effect + Way of the Chameleon

Suppose I play Gatekeeper with Way of the Chameleon. Will Chameleon affect the next turn effect and I get +3 Cards?
What about Chameleoned Hireling, will it give +$1 each subsequent turn?

To my understanding, the answer is yes, and it means that dominion.games has a bug

No.  The text on the Way states "Follow this card's instructions; each time that would give you +Cards this turn, you get +$ instead, and vice-versa." (emphasis mine)  The official FAQ clarifies this, saying "If you play a Duration card using Way of the Chameleon, only the +$ and +Cards you get that turn are affected; for example, if you play Merchant Ship (from Seaside) and use Way of the Chameleon, you will get +2 Cards this turn, but the normal +$2 next turn."

Basically the reason for that wording boils boils down to tracking issues IRL. You are supposed to remember what you do/did the current turn, but remembering how many of your Duaration cards you Chameleon'ed last turn may be hard in a 4 player game, for example.
