What Updates /etc/localtime?

I see in CentOS 7 that /etc/localtime is a symlink (which seems sensible…) but in earlier versions it is a copy of some file from under /usr/share/zoneinfo. rpm -q –scripts tzdata does not show any postinstall script, so in the non-symlink versions, how does the copied /etc/localtime file get updated with new zone data?
