Hm, that's odd. Shouldn't those end with a 'Z' to indicate that they are
in GMT? Then they'd be correct, right? The meeting was actually at 18:00

let's call it UTC, not GMT, to have same terminology as in RFC. 

Date/time stored this way, without timezone, is called "floating" [1],
which means that it's in your case between 18 - 19 in whatever timezone
you see the event. If you read the section at [1] carefully, then you'll
notice that it's not good to use floating times, thus I'd say that the
phone software is a bit lazy (though it depends on actual data received
from the Exchange server).

A bug on evolution's side might be that it doesn't convert the time to
your Europe/Oslo timezone, but rather to UTC, and then convert it to
Europe/Oslo, but I imported your event into my calendar and it behaves
correctly according to [1], it sticks at 6PM to 7PM on Sunday June 2nd
either I look on it in EST or CET timezone (this is with git master,
development 3.9.2 version, but it might be quite the same as stable

Do not worry, it was only a hint from my side. By the way, in a digest,
you might be able to reply to an individual message by clicking the
button above each respective message, then you get a context menu, where
is an item to reply to that particular email.
