Zen 3 is 4th gen/5000 series. Zen 2 is 3rd gen, Zen + is 2nd Gen.

Example:

R5 1600x is Zen - 1st Gen
R5 2600x is Zen + - 2nd Gen
R5 3600x is Zen2 - 3rd Gen
R5 5600x is Zen 3 - 4th Gen

They skipped 4000 series, for non APU's, due to the odd segmentation of the APU's being on an older process, and to lessen confusion.
