D4/D4s vs. D800e AF Fine Tuning Question

I'm curious if owners of a D4/D4s body and D800/D800e body noted any difference in the need for zoom lenses to have different AF Fine Tuning Values at different focal lengths/apertures?

Stated another way, my 70-200 f4 on D800e wants one value at 70mm and another value at 200mm, as is commonplace with AF tuning.

Is this tendency solely lens dependent in that such is the nature of zoom lenses or does the improved D4/D4s focusing affect the situation?

This symptom is especially serious in that an individual displaying it never thinks of it as a sign of ill health but as proof of his/her strength. ...Friday, it is too late to save this culture--this worldwide culture... Therefore we must now prepare the monasteries for the coming Dark Age. Electronic records are too fragile..."
