so, why is it claiming that an AF lens can't be used on a zx-30 body...?

I don't own one of the 'crippled' KAF bodies so the answer is better left to others. But you may want to check the following. There are many limitations with this mount.

I don't know much about these "AF" lenses, but I suspect these were the short-lived, first implementation of AF. The vast majority of Pentax autofocus lenses are F, FA, FA-J, D-FA, and DA.

The AF lenses are early autofocus lenses compatible with the ME F autofocus camera (there's only one model, a 35-70 f2.8 zoom). They do not have an automatic aperture setting, and so have most in common with 'M' lenses, which also cannot be used with the cheaper ZX/MZ cameras. They only provide autofocus with the ME F body, I believe.
