No worries.  The fact that it is documented in rcS is historical at
this point.  It always used to be set in the /etc/default/rcS file.
But in recent times they moved it to /etc/adjtime instead.  However as
far as I know there isn't a man page for adjtime.  So while historical
that is the only place that I know it to be documented.

Oh!  I guess it is documented in hwclock(8).  So if I had really been
on the ball I would have suggested that instead.  But I will back fill
that now.

  man 8 hwclock

That would have been better of me! :-)
