Currently, tz database say Mongolia use UTC+7/8/9 as timezone.
However, after quick google search, I found a question about time of
Mongolia in a Mongolia question and answer time at [1]. The page itself is
facing technical problem to me so I accessed it via Google cache which I
subsequently thrown the cache into Google translate and archived the result
at [2].

According to the page from 2016, three different users of the site answered
the question with same answer, and all of them are saying Mongolia have
three different timezone: 6, 7, 8. This is different from the information
recorded in tz database. So, is the information in tz database incorrect?

And then, another question on the site [3] (archived in [4]) asked about
when did Mongolia start officially using the world time and someone
answered since 1997.  What does that mean? (On the other hand, another
answer to a similar question say 1961... [5][6] or is that an error in
machine translation?)
