I quote this out of interest more than an argument, from

"The team has been watching Opportunity's power very carefully. It seems
that Opportunity is losing some of the power boost it received during the
last cleaning event. The solar array wake up time has been getting later
each day and is currently 9:48 Mars Local Solar Time. The team has been
planning accordingly, taking steps to preserve power where appropriate."

I find it fascinating that the only bunch of humans currently operating on
a planet other than Earth find it compelling to use local Solar Time.
