  `pacman` uses local time of your system. Indeed it seems like an ommision.

  You may consider opening a feature request, so pacman.conf would allow
either an option to include TZ in the logs (good idea) or setting custom
time format (worse idea, as this would bind `pacman` codebase to the
specific time formatting function).
