Linux doesn't do that.

No.  Since Windows is incapable of dealing with UTC you put the BIOS clock
on local time and tell Linux that you have done so.  Linux then assumes
that the BIOS clock gives correct local time and that someone else is
taking care of DST.  This works as long as you boot Windows frequently
enough.
