That's the NMEA time (as provided by gpsd) when the clock was
synchronized to PPS. It's unfortunately in seconds. I think it was
with 115200 baud rate.

He said chronyd was switching between the PPS and GPS sources, so the
0.3s spike could be just the PPS-NMEA offset. The other graph with
chronyd using NTP sources doesn't seem to have this problem.
