If you are on desktop version it shall return system datetime of your computer. Most probably the same is for mobile versions, but I didn't test.

 

If you are on Online version, it returns datetime for the timezone which is set for Onedrive/Sharepoint site or where do you keep files online. That's not necessary your local time if you didn't care about regional settings for online storage.
