Timezone in Apps

Is it correct that Apps will always send any user-entered datetime* as UTC (+0000), not taking into account the locale setting of the browser or the backend server?

* Scenario: A data table with a column of type “datetime” in ONE DATA is displayed as table, for the datetime a global column style formatter is defined for “german-style”-dates:

    "name": "column_name",
    "format": "DD.MM.YYYY HH:mm"

Background: I’m trying to get all times shown to the customer in CET consistently.

in ONE DATA all datetime values are stored in UTC.
The App builder also shows the values in UTC and does not adapt them to the browsers timezone.
When a datetime is saved from Apps (e.g. through data table save) its timezone is assumed to be UTC by the ONE DATA backend.
