Yes, I addressed that when I said

That's also mentioned in the comments in the source file:
# With the --max-procs option, zargs may not correctly capture the exit
# status of the backgrounded jobs, because of limitations of the "wait"
# builtin.  If the zsh/parameter module is not available, the status is
# NEVER correctly returned, otherwise the status of the longest-running
# job in each batch is captured.

However, see patch submitted a few minutes ago to zsh-workers.
