DSLR Mount or Mirrorless Mount

I'm a Nikon shooter with both a D850 and Z7.  When Nikon introduces its next new lens, will it be DSLR mount or mirrorless mount.  If its DSLR mount, then it's not optimized for mirrorless.  If its a mirrorless mount, then it can't be used on their DSLRs.  One thought is that for the next year or two, DSLR mount lenses will be prioritized because they can be used with adapter on a mirrorless body.

Unfortunately, this kind of defeats the whole idea of introducing a mirrorless body with larger mount for better optical performance.  Nikon only introduces 6 or 7 lenses per year at most so getting the lens you are hoping for in the future will probably be few and far between.  I also suspect, Nikon's DSLR mount introductions will take the brunt of it.
