The 'date' command just displays the time using the system time zone (unless overridden by the $TZ environment variable).  According to the log, it is systemd-timedated what changes the time zone.  I am switching the component to systemd, which is the package that installs systemd-timedated.

Comment 2 Lukáš Nykrýn 2017-01-24 09:45:32 UTC
Timedated does not update timezone based on the location. Maybe gnome does?

> Maybe gnome does?

Yes, though it's gnome-settings-daemon rather than gnome-shell which does that.
