Okay, I tried it out; I set the timezone to Saskatchewan time, and
then I was able to delete the recording.

So, I'd say that confirms there's a bug somewhere. Deleting of
recordings is following the timeshift somehow, and Watching recordings
is not. I would expect that Watching is the correct behaviour.

Hm, I wonder if that would mean I can't delete any of my recordings
from before the time shift. Unfortunately, I want to keep them all, so
I can't delete any to try it out

I could suspect that popular Qt timezone bug, except that I'm not
running FC, and  even if I was, I'm not running a version that has the
bug (far as I understand). But even if it is a Qt bug, why doesn't it
affect Watching a recording as well. :)
