Section 3.5. says:

A time field is an unsigned four-octet number containing the number
of seconds elapsed since midnight, 1 January 1970 UTC.

It should say:

A time field is an unsigned four-octet number containing the number
of seconds elapsed since midnight, 1 January 1970 UTC, ignoring leap
seconds.

Notes:

And I did not yet talk about relativity theory.
--VERIFIER NOTES--
The OpenPGP time is an integer denoting UTC time. An implementation is free to display with or without leap seconds just as it might display said time in a time zone.
