I would disagree, and that’s precisely why I brought this up:

Indeed, bringing up shadows in post gives you very much the same results as boosting ISO in camera. BUT with uniform high ISO the camera blows out the highlights in a predominantly dark scene.

If the highlights blow out, you don't meter correctly. In such a scene you should use either highlight priority metering (provided Nikon Z has that)

Yes, the Z6 and Z7 do offer Highlight-weighted Metering.

or spot metering (which most cameras has). Alternatively you can use exposure compensating using the histogram as a guide.
