Flash zoom passing through a remote trigger

Hi all, I've started playing around with multiple flashes with my D5300.

I bought some Polaroid wireless flash triggers. They work fine. With one sitting on the cameras hot shoe, with a Nikon i-TTL flash on it, and another as a remote with another flash, I can take a photo either from the camera or from the remote flash, or by having a third trigger just as a remote pushbutton.

The exposure is just right so the TTL functions all seem to be working properly. I've noticed, though, that if I change the zoom on the camera, neither the flash on top of the camera, nor the one on the remote trigger, change their zoom to match. Both flashes do zoom if connected directly to the camera. Is this a limitation of the passthrough, or am I missing a setting?
