No noticable IBIS on Z7 with old 105 macro lens?

Hi just got the Z7 today and am really loving it.   I just went for a walk around in the back yard however with my old 105/2.8 Nikkor Micro lens with a couple of dumb extension tubes...  but I didn't seem to be getting any image stabilisation like I hoped I would as its in the body?

My shots were sharp enough (as I was testing high ISO so had the shutter speed up) but just looking through the viewfinder I didn't detect any more stable view when the shutter was half down etc.. and when I turned VR off it looked the same...

Any ideas on why this is so?  Perhaps it doesn't work with manual lens setups like this?
