I want to ask Kyzer or Brad, I hope they will see this message. I'm working on the patch for time extraction for v1, v6 and v7.

Do I understand correctly, that UUIDs contain local time, not UTC time? For examples in [0] I see that "A.6. Example of a UUIDv7 Value" I see that February 22, 2022 2:22:22.00 PM GMT-05:00 results in unix_ts_ms = 0x017F22E279B0, which is not UTC, but local time.
Is it intentional? Section "5.1. UUID Version 1" states otherwise.

If so, I should swap signatures of functions from TimestampTz to Timestamp.
I'm hard-coding examples from this standard to tests, so I want to be precise...

If I follow the standard I see this in tests:
+-- extract UUID v1, v6 and v7 timestamp
+SELECT uuid_extract_time('C232AB00-9414-11EC-B3C8-9F6BDECED846') at time zone 'GMT-05';
+ timezone
+ Wed Feb 23 00:22:22 2022
+(1 row)

Current patch version attached. I've addressed all other requests: function renames, aliases, multiple functions instead of optional params, cleaner catalog definitions, not throwing error when [var,ver,time] value is unknown.
What is left: deal with timezones, improve documentation.

Best regards, Andrey Borodin.
