that's not always true as the posix tz format
cannot represent any timezone

in my tzdata files these are counter examples:

/usr/share/zoneinfo/Israel
/usr/share/zoneinfo/Iran
/usr/share/zoneinfo/America/Argentina/San_Luis
/usr/share/zoneinfo/America/Santiago
/usr/share/zoneinfo/Egypt
/usr/share/zoneinfo/Chile/Continental
/usr/share/zoneinfo/Chile/EasterIsland
/usr/share/zoneinfo/Antarctica/Palmer
