No; the "-s" flag is not required here.
This command works just fine:
  date -u 063023452015.00
It is equivalent to this:
  date -u -s "jun 30 2015 23:45:00"

I am not going to argue about whether those lines should or should not exist in the leap seconds file.
All I can say is that everything worked perfectly for me without them.
