FWIW The problem described here is the same one I described in the thread

[Samba] Cannot remove old NS record

If you look at the last post dated Jan 4, 2020 I describe the problem where I deleted an old PTR and tried to create a new PTR because the IP address had changed. I could never see the new pointer and there was strangeness having to do with the PTR already existing after deletion. I blamed the issue on something related to the old NS RR still hanging around and dropped the issue as it wasn't impacting the AD operation.

What is of interest I am using CentOS 7 with the Sernet packages and BIND_DLZ also.
