Actually ZFS does implement vfs_vget, but with a special quirk for .zfs/ and
stuff under it:

static int
zfs_vget(vfs_t *vfsp, ino_t ino, int flags, vnode_t **vpp)
        zfsvfs_t        *zfsvfs = vfsp->vfs_data;
        znode_t         *zp;
        int             err;

         * zfs_zget() can't operate on virtual entires like .zfs/ or
         * .zfs/snapshot/ directories, that's why we return EOPNOTSUPP.
         * This will make NFS to switch to LOOKUP instead of using VGET.
        if (ino == ZFSCTL_INO_ROOT || ino == ZFSCTL_INO_SNAPDIR)
                return (EOPNOTSUPP);
