And of course right after I finished writing this question, I figured out the answer. Go to Settings, Lock Screen and Security, Info and App Shortcuts, Dual Clock, and that has a "set home timezone" option. It would've made more sense to put it somewhere in the "Time and Date" Settings section, but oh well.
It should be under your system settings (the Settings "app"), in the "Date & Time" subsection (which is near the bottom). Uncheck the "Automatic time zone" option and then select the correct one manually:
Time is updated using specific protocols. The information exchanged might include a DST flag (at least I would have done that if I'd made the specs), together with a TZ and the unix time stamp. But given that not even NTP does that (neither TZ nor DST), it might be doubtful.
So far the thoughts. However, GSM devices such as many Android smartphones rather ...
Android uses tzdata (IANA Time Zone Database) to store time zone data, and Daylight Saving Time (DST) information is included in it. The data tells if DST is observed from what date/time to what date/time on a given time zone. Thus, you can't really disable the DST if you're using a time zone that observes DST.
Therefore, to "disable" the DST, you have to ...
You will need to research how to set this on Galaxy Nexus and Jelly Bean, but ..
You are currently using "GMT -03:00, Brasilia Time", and this does not include Daylight Savings by default.
You need to instead use (one of):
These all use UTC -2:00 for DST.

Just did a quick search on the Issue Tracker - you might want to follow these threads and/or contribute a bug report for them:
https://issuetracker.google.com/issues/120241605 Android Pie - Clock shows wrong time (intermittent)

Yes, at least for me. All of my events are stored as GMT and the time of the event is displayed based on the time of the device (my location).
Now, I don't know what happens if you "specify" the timezone like you mentioned, as I have never done that.
Yes, this will all work as smoothly as you hope.
I recently traveled to a different timezone. Before the trip I added a lot of events in my Google calendar with an explicit timezone set (of my destination). Google (and my phone) did the timezone math correctly when I was there.
The only caveat is that if you travel somewhere outside of your phone's ...
Google calender works with time zones exactly like you hope it would. All events shift appropriately based on your local time zone without user intervention. I particularly like how on the web you can specify a different time zone for the start and end of an event so you can accurately record the time of an airplane trip.
I'd first check your settings under Date & Time (at the bottom of the settings menu).
Possibility 1: Automatic time zone is deselected.
Issue: Your phone is manually setting an incorrect time zone.
Solution: Select Automatic time zone
Possibility 2: Automatic time zone is selected.
Issue: Your phone is automatically selecting an incorrect timezone
Yeah, it seems that /system/usr/share/zoneinfo/zoneinfo.* files is tzdata in java format. I tried to use TimeZone Fixer - it replaced all those 3 files. After rebooting device and enable clock synchronization via GPS on system menu, I get right time. Messaging apps now show right time too.
So, using "TimeZone Fixer" app is likely solves my issue - but app ...
For ssh users, following up on @Death Mask Salesman's comment. sshd allows setting up ENV via proper config (from man --pager='less -p ^ENVIRONMENT' ssh):
[...] Additionally, ssh reads ~/.ssh/environment, and adds lines of the format “VARNAME=value” to the environment if the
file exists and users are allowed to change their environment. For more ...
It's incredibly annoying that Google doesn't care about those things. If your phone is rooted, fire up a terminal or "adb shell" from a computer. Get a root shell by typing "su" and then:
setprop persist.sys.timezone "Asia/Makassar"
After restarting the phone, you get "Central Indonesia Time" under "Select time zone", despite the fact that it's not in the ...
This is a workaround not a permanent solution
(OP is looking for a permanent solution as mentioned in comment but I am posting this workaround that may possibly benefit future visitors)
This problem appears to be a persistent issue as OP saw with multiple apps they tried and also reported in the Strava app forum Incorrect Activity Time with daylight ...
Unfortunately, Google removed the option to add custom widgets to the lockscreen in Android 5.0 and didn't bring it back, for whatever reason.
The only option you have is rooting your device and installing xposed framework. There is a module called 'Lock Screen Widgets' which allows you to add custom widgets to the lockscreen (hence the name). Then, just ...
I'm not entirely sure what your question is. I think you are reporting errors in the Time Zone data in your copy of the Android system.
You report that Android lists Washington DC as EST (-5 UTC), and say that this is wrong. According to a Time Zone database entry for Washington DC, based on the IANA Time Zone database, this city does indeed observe U.S. ...
Try this app: TimeZone Changer
I just spent several hours fighting with Android's time zones. It wouldn't even let me select a UTC+0 city that doesn't change between winter/summer time (e.g. > Reykjavik).
After searching and searching I came across Google's bug forum, where they recommends TimeZone Changer app.

Assuming you're on a network that is available on the location you are going to, you could check the Automatic date and time setting under Date and time settings. That should update the time accordingly.
The Lock time zone setting in the S Planner says:
Lock event times and dates to your selected time zone below. Times and
dates will not change even if you move to another time zone.
This means that the event retains the same timezone it was originally created with. However, the display will be adjusted according to the locked timezone.
e.g. If you ...
You might be aware of the common fact that the date,time,time zone set in the device settings will act as a reference/source for various apps like calender,logs,messages.So whatever be the date,time setting your settings will be reflected to all the required apps.(factory widgets,custom installed apps). So if you want the correct time to be reflected in the ...

Android does not synchronize neither time nor time zone with GPS (I don't know about CyanogenMod but I don't think it works in some other way).
Android does synchronize both time and time zone with cellular network. I guess that your cellular network sends to you wrong time zone (African). You can disable it by unchecking "Automatic time zone" in Settings ->...
My work outlook sends the appointment with a timezone of
TZID:New Zealand Standard Time
(I am in New Zealand) so this look reasonable.
The start time for a 7:30pm appontment on 7 April 2017 is:
DTSTART;TZID=New Zealand Standard Time:20170407T193000
but Android doesn't process this ...
My Samsung S-iii/Android 4.4.2 causes a 4 hr shift on my outlook calendar, even if the event was originally generated by Google's Holiday posting...if it's a reoccurring event. Daily, monthly, annually, anything initiated on my android that is reoccurring displays the shift. And finding and turning on or off the time zone lock on either my Samsung calendar ...
I just figured out the fix and I'm no techie. After reading several of these posts I noticed someone said to uncheck a setting under calendars. I unchecked the box that said "use home time zone" after setting time to my zone. It worked even though I can't tell you why. I have only had my android for a week and have not traveled out of this time zone. I ...
