Default Do you turn off "location access" in all the apps that don't need it?

Of course, I haven't changed time zones in the past two days, but, there
*is* a "Date and time" setting in Android 4.3:
XXXXX

Notice that I have set:
[x] Automatic date and time (Use network-provided time)
[x] Automatic time zone (Use network-provided time zone)

So, um, er ... can't the clock get the time and time zone from the
so-called "network-provided" time and time zone?

If the clock is not getting the time and time zone from the network, how
does it get the *time* merely from the GPS location? [It can't.]

I don't know where the clock app gets its time and time zone from, but it
would seem to me it would just need to get it from the system clock and
system location, which can be provided by the carrier, it seems.
