No it doesn't. As far as I can see a ordinary query for record in
the zone is covered by the request for written permission.
"All rights, in particular the right of duplication, circulation
or usage, belong exclusively to nic.berlin, unless you have an
explicit written agreement with nic.berlin."
That doesn't say "in full" which would restrict it to the complete zone.,
