Yes, the reason for this is simple.  Installations on the NSLU2 happen
via SSH so all steps are skipped that happen before the network is
brought up - and this includes the country/timezone.

The long term solution is to somehow make the country/timezone
selection available after the net is brought up.

Anyway, this is documented on

"After the installation, you need to configure your timezone because a
default value was chosen for this during the installation. You can do
this with the tzconfig command. Apart from this, your new Debian
system is fully configured."
