Would a Zs test show if it was a problem?

Unlikely, unless you happened to know the precise length of the cable (and had a better than average loop tester, especially if on a non-trip setting).

This should confirm that the OPD is correctly sized to protect the circuit.

If might be protected against faults - but not necessarily against overloads (i.e. loads above the actual (reduced) CCC). Even faults might be a bit dodgy as there's a min c.s.a. needed to pass the adiabatic as well as Zs to consider.
