I see "25:00" only in the tables, not in the text. So possibly the 
author is putting in entries to make the values "right" rather than 
attempting to exactly copy the legislation.

That paper is quite helpful. Attached is a proposed patch to fix the tz 
entries to agree with the paper's for Europe/Madrid. There are still 
several gaps outside Madrid (and even in Madrid during the chaos of its 
fall in 1939).
