Works fine and with COMPLETE_IN_WORD set also in the middle of string

Of course works too.
Which zsh version and completion style do you use? I am not sure if compctl
does what you want (I have not used it for years) but new compsys does. If
you have zsh 4.2.x, try
autoload -U compinit; compinit
to initialize completion system.

It is. Completion is context-sensitive. It knows that export expects
(path-)assignment; that for dd if= has path as argument; but it has no way to
know this for arbitrary command "foo". While it is possible to fallback to
something like dd does, I am now sure it is good idea; you probably need it
only for several commands and it is likely zsh already includes suitable
completion for them.

Which suggests you are using compctl.

This satement is meaningless :) Which distribution, which version? Some of
them may use compsys by default some not. Anyway, just try compinit as above
and if it works, try compinstall that will help you to setup new completion
BTW zsh-users would be more appropriate for such questions.
