I guess I got two special ones because none of the two I have had did this. They got fed MC oil exclusively because, I wasn't having any problems, why experiment?

ZDDP is a recognized additive that used to be used more commonly in oil formulations for 70+ years so, it has a legit history. It is still widely used in stationary engines and such, as a wear reducer. It's a toxic heavy metal and as such, has environmental impacts and that's why it's disappearing from regular motor oils. That and the fact modern engines are built t a higher quality standard, making this stuff less necessary.
