You could just set LC_TIME=de_DE (or whatever timeformat you prefer) in
some enviroinment file sourced at startup. /etc/osso-af-init/locale is 
the place
locales are read now, but if you ever change regional settings after that,
your change to that file will get overwritten.

Do you have a Linux desktop?What do select to get a 24h locale there?

The device is just using normal Linux locales, I guess they don't want 
to clutter
the regional settings screen with more settings.
