IBIS not working with adapted macro lens Z7ii

Im using an Irix 150mm macro in f mount with my Z7ii. It has a chip and passes electronic info, everything else works fine but when i turn on stabilization, i can hear a click of the system activating but the image does not stabilize at all, which sucks cause it means its impossivle to hand hold. Camera definitely does stabilize on other f mount lenses on the adapter, even my old 35-70 2.8. The stabilization on that is clear as day. I would try a dumb adapter but the irix doesnt have an aperture ring

Ive also tried manually setting a focal length but i dont think that is possible when the lens has a chip.

Any thoughts?

I will say im not overally impressed with the ftzii build quality, its nearly impossibly tight to mount on some lenses. anybody have experience with another brand that works the same but is better built?
