No idea about Mac OS, but normally that file --- actually /etc/zshenv, no "."
--- isn't present on most systems, as it would be executed by every
single instance of zsh that starts on the system.  This is generally a bad
thing unless there's some overriding local reason for that.

It's much more normal to have other /etc/z* files, trying looking for those.

I'm not sure learning zsh scripting form standard system files is a
particularly great way anyway, but I'm saying that without having actually
looked at the Mac OS ones.  There will be plenty of examples around the web.
