Right, because RMS has to be averaged over an interval.

Instantaneous peak values can be meaningful, but in the digital domain they
aren't really instantaneous. They correpond to a sample interval.

As a practical matter, some measuring tools allow the measurement interval
can be set to be within a useful range that corresponds to something of
interest to the user.
