If you want to run hwclock yourself you still have to specify the
"--directisa" option explicitly. I would not worry about this too much
since there is normally little reason to run this command yourself. (If
you want to make sure that the system clock stays on time while the
computer is up and running: That is the job of "ntp" or "chrony" and
does not directly involve the hardware clock AFAIK.)

Thanks for the nice explanation.
