At least speaking for OpenBSD, /etc/localtime is a symlink to the timezone. For 
me it looks like this:
$ ls -l /etc/localtime                                                          
                                                                                
            
lrwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  33 Feb 20 11:02 /etc/localtime -> 
/usr/share/zoneinfo/Europe/Berlin
