> If I am interpreting the documentation correctly, then the last Zone line
says that there is a Rule "ROK" in effect, but for dates after Sunday
October 09, 1988 no Rule can be found.

The last Rule line says that on Sunday October 09, 1988 you should
transition out of DST, and that's what the software does.
After that, there aren't any transitions specified by Rules, so the software
doesn't do anything else.
This really is what's supposed to happen; there's no need for a change here.
