Yes, there is space down the bottom of the screen, below the A: & B: marker times, to show a "Selected" time. So the display could be modified to show this.

Be aware though that the duration of the final clip is not exactly the same as you would see from the "Selected" time. For example, using a 59.941fps clip with:

A:  00:00:30.080
B:  00:01:30.140

Both A & B are chosen using the UP key, so they on I-frames.

The difference here is 1:00.060.  But, after doing a Copy/Copy/MP4v2, I get 3,603 frames. Dividing by 59.941 =  60.109s. Taking 60.06s away from this and then dividing by 59.941, I get 2.94 frames. Allowing for time value rounding,  the final clip is 3 frames longer than selected.

If B-frames are present, additional delay may be added to the video, increasing the total duration.

There is no space below the go-to-marker buttons currently, it is occupied by the "view filtered" checkbox. Moving the checkbox to a more suitable place would allow to display the duration of the selection there.
