FORMAT_DATE adjusting for timezone when applied against DATE field

When applying FORMAT_DATE function to a DATE field, the resulting output is adjusting the DATE based on the timezone.

Note - This might be related to…

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Add field “Test_Date__c” to Account object as a DATE field
  2. Set SFDC timezone setting to make sure you are on a prior day from 00:00 GMT
  3. Create page using XML below
  4. Preview page

Expected Behavior
Test_Date__c == Formatted Date

Actual Behavior
Test_Date__c is correct
Formatted Date has adjusted for timezone (mine is PDT)

Sample Page XML

      <model id="Account" limit="1" query="true" createrowifnonefound="false" sobject="Account" adapter="" type="">
            <field id="Name"/>
