The tablet driver does not have the slightest info about your zoom level nor the tool you are using in a program. But the tablet driver should provide information to the application software on 2 channels:
a) it should send the screen pointer to a specific pixel position on screen - it cannot send the pointer to invisible pixels, that are currently not shown when you zoom out too much.
b) it provides high resolution tablet information to application software, thus providing 'subpixel accuracy'. It is up to the application software and perhaps settings, whether subpixel accuracy is applied.

It looks like you get only pixel accuracy - enabling 'smoothing' in Photoshop should still help to some extend. But subpixel accuracy is better. - If that is not working, the high resolution data is not going from the driver to the app. I do not know, whether the driver is doing something, the OS, or the application. According to the developers there is something on the side of Apple in Sierra that is not working as expected.

I can picture the conversation.

wacom: "Hey Apple, it's wacom. The newest version of Sierra broke our drivers."

apple: "That's why we pre-release developer betas of our Mac OS. WTF"


and Davide, I'm using Corel Painter everyday, and I can assure you the wavy line bug is alive and horrible in that program as well.

Wacom, I get that the apple OS updates can muck things up, but something in the earlier 6.3.18-4 driver update fixed the wavy lines before, so why can't that specific solution be brought into a new driver update?

I have this issue too still. I am on mac pro using sierra. everytime i install a new driver or reinstall an old one the problem is fixed, but afterawhile my wacom cintiq is undetected again. sometimes plugging and unpluggin usb helps. usually the only thing that helps is a restart.
