Interesting that this post even rated a reply (after a fashion) from Thom - https://www.zsystemuser.com/nikon-z-system-news-and/how-to-get-around-nikons.html

"For example: "I won't buy the Z6 II because it doesn't have zebras for stills." Zebras are a crosshatch pattern that appears on values higher than a pixel limit you set (on a Z you can set eight values from 180 to 255). Well, you can get to zebras quickly to evaluate exposure on all the Z's:"

Thom was gracious to pm me directly with the hint. The trick (switch to video to see the zebras) works with the limitation I found that on the Z7 (which I've rented - but I would assume the same on the Z6)  you can have both the highlights/Zebras with focus peaking - in the rare case that you're shooting MF.
