Hmmm - I don’t think so…

Sure one can choose to have 01-24 but that is not the issue I describe.  
I agree that top-of-midnight can be properly expressed as 24:00 but 
times after midnight ought never be described as 24:xx…

As far as I can tell, the settings you outline do not tell macOS, for 
example, to display 15m past midnight as 24:15…
