Sounds like a packaging bug. Point it out to the package maintainer,
and in the meantime, I'd just add a symbolic link:
ln -s /usr/lib/zope/lib/python/Products/ZMySQL /usr/lib/zope2.7/lib/python/Products/ZMySQL

Personally I don't use linux distro zope packages.. they never put
things where I want, they lag behind releases, etc.
Zope stuff is so easy to install from source that I find it easier
in the long run to do that.
