You don't need to do anything.  On the Sunday with the extra hour, MRTG
will have a 25-hour day on the daily graph.  With the hour removed, a
23-hour day will be graphed.  It all happens automagically.

MRTG will complain if you manually reset the clock such that the
epoch-seconds of a data capture occurs prior to a previously recorded
one, but this doesn't relate to daylight savings time.  Sync to NTP
and you'll never have to adjust your clock.
