> My question is: does this particular subtag 'zinh' help any applications display characters properly?
The ISO 15924 script identifier, as it would be used in the Unicode Character Database, most definitely is used in software implementations to display text properly.
As a subtag in a BCP47 language tag, it would most certainly NOT help any applications display characters properly. In a language tag, it would have no useful purpose.
