Sorry, "debconf-show util-linux" shows nothing, which suggests there's no dpkg
config settings for util-linux. Whether to set the hwclock to UTC or localtime
should have been asked in installing some other package.

Anyway, it was a miss as an alternative way, the main solution being you
initial proposition of "hwclock --localtime"

I would suggest renaming /etc/adjtime (if it exists) so that you can compare
the difference after the change.
