Indeed that is intentional because in lmtx we disable them (partially). 
You have to say:

\normalsupmarkmode\zerocount % we use 1 as default in lmtx

This is because in lmtx we have native prescript support, as in:

   $ x^{rt}_{rb}^^{lt}__{lb} $

so, double _ ^ can have a different meaning there.
