This does not affect a base install of Xubuntu, but one that is shared
with other installed sessions that pull in the GNOME Control Center and
the Date Time Indicator.

The GNOME Control Center only displays it's configuration tools inside
of a GNOME or GNOME-like environment, and will just show up blank
anywhere else.

To populate these settings, just launch the control center with the
below command.

env XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP=GNOME gnome-control-center

Moving this bug to indicator-datetime since it could be made aware of
the running desktop and gnome-control-center since it seems to be an
intentional functionality of the GNOME desktop.
