On an 88 the clock does get constant power and is in fact always on. It's LCD display draws very little power.
My guess is that somebody screwed with the wiring at some point and got it wrong.
Jim's diagram does show it, and his diagram is very easy to follow for figuring out just where the wires should run from/to. The service manual is clearer (for me, anyhow) on what gets powered when. I'm attaching it here - clock is on page 15.
Hit me up with a PM and I can send you Papajam's awesome color coded diagram.
