Default Timecode on programme-as-broadcast archive material

This is probably a weird, obsessive question...

I've noticed that if you see a programme from a tape archive (eg BBC's
Windmill Road) with burnt-in timecode, the TC often begins at 10:00:00
rather than 00:00:00. An example is Is there a reason why they
chose to begin the TC at a "zero" of 10:00:00?
