I guess the STTY special environment variable has no effect if
interactive is not set.

Why not simply:

        stty -onlcr

in your script?

If you're worried about resetting the terminal state on exit (which
you shouldn't in a zpty session), you always can:

        trap 'stty $savedstty' EXIT
        savedstty=$(stty -g)
        stty -onlcr
