Doc: Update QTime to JavaScript Date conversion description
* Update description as the behavior changed with 2b8b7a162be52f8cd6c2bc39f498a1ddfb59dd68. * Remove implementation details from description (the specific date), as it may be subject to change. * Simplify a needlessly complicated explanation. Task-number: QTBUG-68516 Change-Id: Ibc25a9923d8c996c47927964cd69b5bd7bbe0240 Reviewed-by: Edward Welbourne <edward.welbourne@qt.io> Reviewed-by: Topi Reiniƶ <topi.reinio@qt.io>

The QML engine provides automatic type conversion from QTime values to

-object should not be relied upon, as it is operating system dependent.
-Specifically, the year (and month and day) are set to zero. Conversion
-from a JavaScript \c Date object to QTime is done by converting to a
-QDateTime, and then relying on QVariant to convert it to a QTime. The end
-effect is that the date part of the \c Date object is ignored, but the
-local timezone will be used ignoring any DST complications it may have.
