After updating to linux-zen 5.16.13-1 (using paru), mkinitcpio -P linux-zen gives out the below errors:
==> ERROR: module not found: `nvidia'
==> ERROR: module not found: `nvidia_modeset'
==> ERROR: module not found: `nvidia_uvm'
==> ERROR: module not found: `nvidia_drm'

The normal arch 5.16.13-1 kernel seems to include them, but not the zen kernel:

➜ 5.16.13-arch1-1 | ls extramodules
bbswitch.ko.xz nvidia-drm.ko.xz nvidia.ko.xz nvidia-modeset.ko.xz nvidia-peermem.ko.xz nvidia-uvm.ko.xz
➜ 5.16.13-arch1-1 | grep -R nvidia_drm
modules.alias:alias pci:v000010DEd*sv*sd*bc06sc80i00* nvidia_drm
modules.alias:alias pci:v000010DEd*sv*sd*bc03sc02i00* nvidia_drm
modules.alias:alias pci:v000010DEd*sv*sd*bc03sc00i00* nvidia_drm
➜ 5.16.13-arch1-1 | cd /lib/modules/5.16.13-zen1-1-zen
➜ 5.16.13-zen1-1-zen | ls extramodules
ls: cannot access 'extramodules': No such file or directory
➜ 5.16.13-zen1-1-zen | grep -R nvidia_drm

Read the Nvidia wiki page. No kernel package includes them.
