The issue is not specific to Special:RecentChangesLinked - other transcluded Special pages (e.g. Special:RecentChanges) display the default timezone (the server time, UTC) instead of a user preferences.

Thanks for filing this bug, at this time the Growth-Team is unable to prioritize this bug.

I just tried to reproduce this bug, but I wasn't able to. The timestamps in Special:RecentChanges is the preffered one I've saved in settings.

Can you please tell an example of this bug ? (A screenshot would be great)

Cannot reproduce either plus needs clearer steps to reproduce; see https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/How_to_report_a_bug
