Could it be a - stylized - indication of polarity, O = anode, | = kathode?

There are also standard symbols for diode and zener on the pcb, it is Sony.

Isn't that a symbol for a current source diode (essentially a JFET with the gate and source leads internally connected)?

Hmmm it looks like a current source diode, it is in series with a zener between V- and ground.
