That's a good question but remember one thing: Zeiss doesn't make the "Zeiss" lenses for Sony cameras.

Zeiss lenses for Sony are designed by Zeiss but made by Sony

The Zeiss Blog provides some more clarity:

Lenses for our CSC, we are using our longstanding global production network of trusted partners in the optical industry.The lenses will be manufactured in Japan.
