That's correct, and is why Paul said tzdb is synchronized "reasonably well"
and not "perfectly".  Since the delta is in the past now, though, it's
considered a change to past time stamps, which is not generally considered
as urgent for cutting a new release.  It will likely wait until we have
more pressing/timely changes to make for the next version.
