It looks like zeros is defined in an extension module and static 
analysis cannot determine the type of its return value.

The shell is introspecting the runtime state of the python shell process 
so can display completions that the editor cannot.

You can run the debugger to a breakpoint in the scope where the code is. 
  When a debug session is active, the autocompleter in the editor will 
combine information obtained from static analysis and from introspecting 
the state of the process being debugged.
