The limitation of current Z6/Z7 firmware updates seemed to be certain. I had a chance testing the 20/1.8 last weekend, and asked Nikon couple of questions. What they explained was hardware related restriction, which prevented the AF performance upgrade.

That is terribly vague though. I'm sure there are hardware limitations, but I am also sure that Nikon was a lot more specific about what it is that is preventing better AF, than simply stating that it is the hardware? Not meaning to imply that your input has no value, but it would be far less subject to all sorts of speculating if people were a bit more careful and precise when making statements on whether the AF performance of the Z6/Z7 can be further improved by firmware updates, or not, and describe why not, if that is the case, certainly when claiming that it comes directly from Nikon.
