I fear nobody of us knows this.

Therefore, you must yourself look at the sources.

If you need this feature and "ZCTextIndex" does not provide
it, then you may use a different text index.
I know that with "TextIndexNG3" you can select different
parsers (among others a parser that does not interpret '(' and ')')
or provide your own one.

Then, you will need to change the lexicon as well.
Usually, the lexicon breaks words at non alnum characters
(with a few exeptions).
Again, when I remember right, "TextIndexNG3" allows you
to specify additional "word characters" (which do not lead to
word braking).
