Comment (by SergeyBiryukov):

 Hi there, thanks for the ticket!

 Using `gmdate()` is intentional as per [45424] / #46438 & #44491, see
 Date/Time component improvements in WordPress 5.3] for more details.

 Using `date()` instead would actually produce a WPCS error:
 2271 | ERROR | date() is affected by runtime timezone changes which
      |       | can cause date/time to be incorrectly displayed. Use
      |       | gmdate() instead.
      |       | (WordPress.DateTime.RestrictedFunctions.date_date)

 There might still be a bug here where the timezone is not applied
 correctly, but I think the solution would look different.
