Yes, and our auxiliary tables (e.g., zone1970.tab) have never listed 
Hong Kong as part of the UK; they've always associated Asia/Hong_Kong 
with the ISO 3166-1 country code HK. If your application lists Hong Kong 
under the UK, I suppose it could be a downstream typo (HK -> UK) but 
you'd have to contact whoever maintains that application to see what 
went wrong.
