In thinking about the ideas of zettelkasten versus wikis, one of the bigger structural differences is in the size of their ideas and how they grow over time.

Ideas start out atomic in zettelkasten and then grow or they are later aggregated together into longer writing.

In wiki settings, ideas are more often aggregated together into bigger pages over time and then potentially split out into smaller sub-topics as they become bigger and more complicated.
