/etc/rc*.d/*hwclock.sh (which are symlinks to /etc/init.d/hwclock.sh).

The relevant code from my version of hwclock.sh is this:

        stop|restart|reload)
                [ "$GMT" = "-u" ] && GMT="--utc"
                hwclock --systohc $GMT
                if [ "$VERBOSE" != no ]
                then
                        echo "CMOS clock updated to `date`."
                fi
                ;;
