Are you sure they are zinc? You have actual evidence? After a career in engineering I've never heard of zinc being used for anything other than an anti-corrosive coating for fasteners. Zinc has very little structural strength which would render it useless for bolts.
When you see "Zinc bolt" advertised, drill down into the detail and you will find they are steel with a zinc coating.
