tzset tool has no man page.
(no /usr/share/man/man1/tzset.1.gz )

what you see with "man tzset" is the man of the newlib tzset


TZSET(3)                                   NEWLIB 

        9.11 `tzset'--set timezone characteristics from TZ environment 

             #include <time.h>
             void tzset(void);
             void _tzset_r (struct _reent *);
