What does this shell command do?

TZ='NZST-12NZDT,M9.5.0,M4.1.0/3' date address@hidden +'%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S %z 

On a working system with GNU 'date', it should output this:

1970-01-01 13:00:00 +1300 (NZDT)

If it outputs "1970-01-01 12:00:00 +1200 (NZST)" on Cygwin, it's a bug
in Cygwin not in Emacs per se.

It does output "1970-01-01 12:00:00 +1200 (NZST)".

Perhaps that's because the DST beginning in 1970 according to these
rules is before the epoch.  I assume that this does produce "+1300"
offset with Cygwin, does it?

   TZ='NZST-12NZDT,M9.5.0,M4.1.0/3' date -d "Sep 28 1970" +'%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S 
%z (%Z)

Yes, it does.
