Why can't I focus stack in MF?

I discovered that I cannot use focus stacking in MF mode on my Nikon Z5. When I start it, there is a strange message asking to change "the settings below". Switching the button on the lens to AF makes it work.

My idea was to focus manually slightly in front of the closest subject and then start the focus stacking.

What exactly is going on here?
