How are you testing this?  The docstring for
message-citation-line-format says that %z and %Z are special-cased, with
both producing the time zone in numeric form.

Maybe there was a deliberate change in Gnus to distinguish %z from %Z
for Emacs 26?  If so, there are still 2 issues: the documentation is
wrong, and I'd expect %Z to produce "PDT", not "+07".

(format-time-string "%Z")
=> "PDT"
