The process is by booting following:
The system reads the hwclock and take a look at /etc/sysconfig/clock for
hwclock state. Is it UTC sets the hwclock time to kernel time. Is it localtime
calculates the UTC from hwclock time using the time zone given in
/etc/localtime and sets the so calculated UTC to the kernel time.

And what is the mkinitrd call for?
During boot, you already know that hwclock is in localtime (this is written in
/etc/sysconfig/clock) and /etc/localtime was set by YaST after changing the
time zone.
