how to zip a bundle, keeping all "locked attributes", was: need ditto zipping help

I think I posted the wrong question to understand the problem.
Is it a normal behavior on Mac, when zipping and unzipping a bundle that a
containing file loses its "locked attribute"?
Or does it depend on the zip tool or its parameters? Other way around, if it
is a standard behavior for ditto and there is no other parameter to keep the
status, is there a recommended zip tool, where all files keep their
locked/unlocked attribute?
Thanks for any advice
