Regan Johnson:
Ive asked quite a few engineers and never got the same answer twice.

If the meters on my console are hitting zero, shouldn't the meters on the eq's output be hitting zero as well, if the eq is flat.  Shouldn't "zero" be constant through the electronics if one isn't affecting the signal?

Yes..

Some equipment has -10dB/+4dB selector. I imagine the position of this switch would affect what the meter displays as "0".

I guess it depends on how you read the phrase "Shouldn't "zero" be constant". If you read it to mean, "In a perfect world wouldn't zero be constant" then the answer is yes. If you read it as "With the difference in reference level between different types of gear can I be certain zero will be constant" then the answer is no.
