R. David Murray added the comment:

The code is shared by the two modules (it's in _strptime.py).  So, yes.

There is clearly a doc bug here (%Z needs a footnote in the table in the datetime docs), but there is no practical way to implement the parsing of arbitrary (non-locale) timezone strings, since it is not a one-to-one mapping.
