I've been told that ZX Tunes elaborates on this, revealing that humans may be partly or fully modified at a certain age and given a "Hu" number, though I currently lack the means to recheck this statement, so take it with a grain of salt.
The subject shouldn't be surprising though since the theme isn't unprecedented: this is pretty commonplace in the Legends series, where many Carbons resort to bionic implants (even Volnutt swapped most of his body for mechanical parts). If anything, it further cements ZX as a significant stepping stone in the transition to Legends.
On a side note, an unrelated series that wonderfully explores the implications of bionic enhancements is Gunnm (a.k.a. Battle Angel Alita) by Yukito Kishiro.
