What non-global routes?

Not exactly. There's no way to create routes for non-global zones, so
you can't lose them.
What you can do is create routes in the global zone that have next hop
addresses that are reachable in a non-global zone. These routes,
though, will still be visible in the global zone (via netstat and
"route get"), but won't be reachable unless you're in the non-global

Ah ... you're talking about interface routes, correct? You can see
the interfaces with "ifconfig," but there's no option in netstat to
avoid filtering based on zone. This is the subject of CR 6369726.
Ask your local support to add a call record (SR) to that CR.
