    I was on travels, and my N3DS didn't have a single internet connection set up. While I was stuck I sat at McDonalds - could it be that N3DS updates the System Software also when in Nintendo Zones without logging into *any* WiFi?

    I was really, really surprised.

    Yes, Nintendo Zones connect automatically without you having to agree.

    Correct, but there's no auto updating - you always have to accept.

    The Zone app requires you to update to be opened, though!

    jup whenever it connects to a nintendo wifi zone it tries to update, but you can still downgrade if you have access to ocarina of time and powersaves or cubic ninja.
