I don't remember that, but it could be.

The RTC is just a timer. It doesn't have any notion of timezone (and
even if it did, a BIOS won't have all the special-case code that the
locale libraries need). Also, IIRC dual-boot systems that are sometimes
running Windows can easily be confused about this.

So a visible user setting would be a good idea, or failing that just
assume that the RTC is in UTC.
