Windows 11
I have three systems: two custom built (a Core i-7 and a Ryzen 5) and a Surface Pro. All three have fresh installs of Windows 11, not upgrades. For some reason all three have "Set time zone automatically" disabled (grayed out). If I try to go into Date and Time under Control Panel and try to do it there I'm told an administrator needs to do it, however I am the administrator on all three systems.

Any ideas how to unlock this setting?

That was the issue, thank you. I used O&O ShutUp10++ and it had disabled location tracking and locked it so I couldn't change it. A quick revert and that did the trick.
