Could be. Anyway, the form with -dz- (as well in other words,
as "dzice", "dziua"/"dzîua") are attested in numerous
documents. And
is still in use in the regions I mentioned in a previous post.

[Moeller] zãu ? "zice-tzi zãu cu limba scoasa".. That was a
joke betwen children , remember?And you speak about
labialisation here? na na, such "jokes" would make you to
learn how difficult is to say "z" with the tongue between your
tooth:-))))) And to think a bit deeper, of course..
