If I read this correct [1]:
* Zero is an interpreter only VM hence it it is slow

* Shark does provide JIT features but

* on iOS you are not allowed to produce exectuable code at runtime
  hence you stick with the interpreter only

* AOT is not on the table for Zero/Shark, at least I didn't find any
  information on that

Anyways I think OpenJFX is not the mailing list to discuss this, I guess.
