Description (partial)

timedatectl command is invoked each minute and timedatectl is a Client to the Service systemd-timedated , hence upon execution of command timedatectl , it Invokes the service systemd-timedated Each Minute which is not a Good Idea as Timezone of the System does not change that Often. Other Scripts that are using is "" and "" But these are not called as often as which runs each minute as a part of the cron

in 12.5.1 Release, It has been found that the ntpWatchDog Cron  /etc/cron.d/ntpWatchdog that runs each minute  is running a timedatectl command to get the timezone each minute which is not necessarily required as System timeZone is a One time time process.
