It used to do that on shutdown as part of /etc/rc.d/init.d/halt and friends, 
but I think it got dropped as part of the switch to systemd.   >grep hwclock 
/etc -r< doesn't find anything.

Does anybody know if it moved to someplace I haven't looked yet and/or if it 
was deliberately dropped or just fell through the cracks?

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
