VMS Automatically Adjusts For Daylight Savings?

In most of the US, daylight savings ends in a few days, on Nov 3rd.

I just read this article that worries video evidence could be thrown out because people fail to change the times on their surveillance systems to account for daylight savings. Does this not automatically happen on the computer/vms being used with the system? Do most people have to go do this manually?
