The opening hours were also mentioned in the passenger information booklet or even in the passenger list. The earliest one I remember is from Olympic 1913 which had the same times (without the smoking room) but the hours were the same in 1911 and 1912.
The smoking room was generally open till midnight and I think it was also mentioned by an Titanic survivor that they shut off the lights at midnight there.

Lights in third class accommodation and in the forecastle were to be put out at 10 PM every evening. The Saloons, libraries, on deck and in companion ways at 11 PM except for emergency lights. Smoking room lights were put out at 12 AM. These according to WSL rules in effect at the time. Late at night the ship was not ablaze with light.

I seem to remember reading (in one of the testimonies, I believe) that after the collision, all lights were turned on to try and signal the Californian and/or the Mystery Ship.
