This is an interesting chiluk, but I don't see that it necessarily follows from any of the sources you brought. Rather, if it is a type of AZ that is permissable to Benei Noach, then I see a *possibility* that there might be kulos for us as well, such as a possible heter to accommodate them. I have no idea what the halacha actually is.
