timezone is the wrong example, because posix kinda mandate to have /etc/localtime to be the timezone information.

I do manage with puppet several server on various distributions and I do it like this.

That is what I initially did, change that file. But then some distributions reverted that change sometimes (IIRC). You had to change the config which they looked at, otherwise you'd start the server with one timezone. Then once puppet service did its thing, /etc/localtime would change. However, all started services are still running under the different timezone.

I gave this example due to experience I had. You expect at least this to be easy, in practice it was not.
