The Zazaki language currently only has its Dimli variation with a language
tag in the latest draft:
Dimli DIQ diq
But in ISO 639-3 Zazaki is a macrolanguage see
There is no OT language tag for Zazaki 'zza' or the other variant Kirmanjki

Like Turkish, some Zazaki orthography uses the dotless i and would require
the correct features in Latin fonts.

To go back on the topic of Luba-Lulua and Luba-Kasai. There is no
difference in their orthographic systems at the glyph level. Both languages
use the Standardized spelling rules that were defined in 1971 for the
national languages (including Tshiluba/Luba-Kasai) and other languages of
Congo-Kinshasa (Zaire back then).
However they are different languages, it makes sense for them to have
different tags.
