Using the FTZ adapter with manual focus lenses

I'm contemplating getting the Z 7 II to replace my aging D3.  I'm attracted to the smaller form factor vs the D850, say.  The D6 is too bulky for my aging back, and also very pricey.

One concern about getting a Z camera is that adapter for F mount lenses.  I still have a bunch of old MF lenses, all AI adapted, going back to my film days.  I have read that FTZ adapter doesn't sense the aperture on MF lenses.  Is this true?

If that is true,  how well do MF lenses work with the Z 7 II?  Is there any way to record the aperature into the EXIF data?
