My understanding is that the RTC chip is embedded in the GBA cartridge itself. So, to answer your question, a clock script would be needed if the game was intended to be played on an actual cartridge because the time on the RTC chip may not be as close to the player's local time as their system time. However, this is irrelevant unless you're planning on distributing your game on cartridges which, if done for profit, is illegal.

tl;dr For all intents and purposes, a clock script is not needed in FR/LG.
