FITS Header Time Comes from where?

So this maybe a dumb question but I can't find a concrete answer anywhere. Where does INDI get the time that it uses to put into the FITS Header of a camera? In this specific case I am using a ASI ZWO 6200mm but I suspect the logic applies to all cameras. I don't see anywhere in the device where I can tell it to "snoop" GPS or anything like that. But I am seeing cases where I get a FITS header back and from my cross-referencing time with my log, it seems my time is off by minutes if not nearly a hour. My Linux box has a GPS and its NTP time synced so I know my system time isn't drifting but I am not sure how INDI is getting that time. Any info would be appreciated!
