bootz refers to the zImage which is only an ARM image type and not an
ARM64 one, which is an Image and hence booti.

That would only change if someone added a self-decompressing kernel
image to ARM64 introducing a zImage to that platform. I have a vague
feeling I once saw it stated that this wasn't needed because
bootloaders can decompress these days, but I have no reference at all
for that.
