Accounting for leap seconds for "this time value"

The current specification has this to say about the time value in dates:
"Time is measured in ECMAScript in milliseconds since 01 January, 1970 UTC.
> In time values leap seconds are ignored. It is assumed that there are
> exactly 86,400,000 milliseconds per day."
What I would like to seek clarification about is if we were to do the
Math.floor(Date.now() / 1000) % 60;
Would complying with the specification mean that this value calculated for
the "seconds" should not correspond with the time shown outside of
"30", would that mean that a clock following UTC should show a seconds
value of "04"? At the moment, it seems that the implementations I have
tested do not follow this.
