If I'm understanding you properly, here's the issue:

When you install a patch on the global zone, it is also installed on all 
non-global zones. So if he applied it to the global zone, it should already be 
applied to the non-global zone. Thus, he would not be able to re-apply it to 
the non-global zone.

Cheers,
David
