Please note that the en_US.UTF-8 locale had the 12-hour time for more
than 20 years, for all applications but the date utility. Therefore this
locale was not a reliable way to get a 24-hour time format.

What is the content of /etc/default/locale? it looks like you have an
additional entry than the LANG one set by dpkg-reconfigure locales.

Also note that you can edit that file and chose a different locale for
each entry, so you can have for example a POSIX way of representing the
time, using a Turkish collation and with a Chilean monetary symbol.
