zargs runs the commands in a subshell, so they can't affect the
current shell environment.

Same as if you'd run:

(compdef ceer=which)

AFAICT, it's not documented but the code of zargs has:

# Everything has to be in a subshell just in case of backgrounding jobs,
# so that we don't unintentionally "wait" for jobs of the parent shell.
