I know because we were IN that NWZ when they went through and their wake had us wallowing in the water pretty good as we went through at NWS.
I have also witnessed this many times. It seems to me that these two boats do not alter speed in no wake zones. This does cause a bit of a jam for boats who *are* travelling at headway speed as large wakes are much less manageable at very slow speed.

I believe that the Mount also does not alter speed in no wake areas - but it's not really a big deal because her wake is virtually non-existent.
