Right now, to get that you need to set a TimeZone setting that will
select the appropriate New Zealand time zone by name.  (I think
'Pacific/Auckland' is the one you want.)  Hopefully we will find some
way of deducing the correct time zone name more automatically, but right
now it's a work in progress.
