Does the A7iv detect animals in general or only eyes?

I finally got to use my A7iv for wildlife. It detects animal and bird eyes really well when possible. But it doesn’t seem to detect animals or birds as such. It doesn’t really matter much because the tracking is so good but I am just curious. So the question is: when I have an animal in zone mode does the camera detect it even if the eyes are not visible or does it detect only when the eyes are visible? I can’t find anything in the manual.
