AF-D means that the autofocus of the lens is driven by a motor in the camera via the screwdriver coupling. An AF-D lens does not have its own motor for autofocus.
No Z camera has a motor for driving lenses. The FTZ adapter does not have a motor for driving AF-D lenses. Therefore, the autofocus of an AF-D lens can never have worked on an FTZ adapter. Neither before nor after the firmware update. Only manual focussing is possible with AF-D lenses and FTZ on Z-Nikons.
