Not really, no.

>From your system, of course.  Although packages like Calendar might
sometimes offer features that use some internal data (but not in this
case, I think).

Let's start with the basics: What does this print:

   M-: (format-time-string "%H:%M %Z %z")

and how does the time it shows compare with your system clock?

Next, do you have a TZ variable in your environment, and if you do,
what is its value?
