I have had a situation where the onset of duty times in my crew rest page and the whitlow page are off by an hour if I start in other than my domicile time zone. For instance, the onset of duty might be 0455 if I started in BGR or DTW when I actually started at 0555. This effects my rest times and end of duty requirements throughout the day.
I have been in touch with NC about this and they are working on the fix.
I will post the information on the fix after I get it in case anyone else is having the same problem.

APDL Crew Rest, Whiltlow, etc are set to calc the times based on the Logbook Timezone. You will notice at the top of those pages it shows the timezone it is using e.g. UTC -6. The only way to change that would be to change your Logbook Timezone, which isn't recommended.

Your times will appear off at first glance if your departure and destination airports are not in the same timezone as your logbook. If you look carefully everything is correct as the times are converted to your Logbook timezone before calculations are performed.
