You bought the LTS for the sake of unlimited access to STO for the life of the game, not for a 500 zen/month stipend.
So on one hand you can say you paid for that zen, with your LTS.
But on the other hand, you paid X for Y (Access to the server and other services), Zen was not part of that from the start so it can be said to be free, as in you didn't pay anything extra for something added on to what you already paid for.
If there was a LTS or monthly sub option that didn't include the zen then that would be different.
It's like the monthly sub. Am I paying $10/month + $5 for 500 zen. Or am I paying $15/month and getting 500 zen free. Both is true depending on how you wish to look at it.
Myself I look at it as free, because I'd be paying $15/month regardless if they gave me zen or not.
