You can use feature.set("key", value) to set a property on a feature. F.e. in the zoom function, do feature.set("zoomed", true) on all features.

And in your style you can of course get that key to adapt your style. So if (feature.get("zoomed")) { // add some style highlight }

It's possible the icons don't get refreshed automatically, then you need to mark them as dirty with a feature.changed() call.
