If they are mandatory for building then you may need a "BuildRequires:
tzdata" in your package now, as you may no longer have it included

If your APIs need tzdata at runtime then you may need a "Requires:
tzdata" if the APIs cannot operate in UTC-only mode with tzdata
removed (minimized container).
