You probably need to read up on the scipen= argument in ?options. What is
displayed at the console is not what is stored:


> x <- 1619052826499

> print(x)

[1] 1.619053e+12

> dput(x)


> options(scipen=10)

> print(x)

[1] 1619052826499

Is there a way to tell R to not import numbers as scientific notation
(read.csv).  So that 1619052826499 will not be imported as 1.619053e+12.
