The latest documentation https://www.gnu.org/software/findutils/manual/html_mono/find.html#Time-Formats is missing time formats for -printf like %Az %Tz %Cz, although %AZ %TZ %CZ are documented.  However these format directives do appear to work.  See also the documentation for the date command, which does document these format directives.  The find manpage is similarly missing documentation for these format directives.
