This creates strange issues, displaying that a post was published in the future ("in two hours"). And this happens visibly, about 700 ms after page load.

I am still encountering this. Is it possible to fix it or undeploy the extension that ignores my preferences?

@Base: Anyone else is very welcome to provide patches to fix this issue. See https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/How_to_become_a_MediaWiki_hacker .

Given stuff like T118024 and T175554 which are quite critical copyright and privacy issues, while this task is merely a big nuisance, the proper fix currently in my opinion is to undeploy, but unfortunately I only know how to do it on an individual private wiki, so I am unable to prepare a patch.
