If only the minute hand is synced to WWVB, why is there a DST-defeat mode?

I have several analog "atomic" clocks and every one sets the hour, 
minute and second hands automatically. There are push buttons for the 
four USA time zones but no DST-defeat provision I am aware of; there is 
an unmarked jumper-pin pair protruding whose function is not explained. 
These clocks are marked "SkyScan on the front but carry the LaCrosse 
name on the rear. Watching this clock sync when the hour hand must be 
set is quite impressive, as it moves quickly!
