  | If no zone for HM is created the bug remains.

Have you considered the possibility that the "bug" is in ISO3166,
which has issued a country code for an object that meets no rational
criteria for being a country?

If they'd just delete HM (and BV), then there would be no argument at all
for us to do anything, right?

Please turn your attention to the people who set the contents of ISO3166,
inform them of the problem they've caused by defining a country code (or two),
and so, apparently, demanding that timezone data be created for an object(s)
with no clocks, and so no time (or zones) and demand that they fix t.

Report back here when you've finished that.
