This is a solution, not a problem description.  Are you sure you want to
solve a problem with this solution or do you want to solve your problem?

If you just want to solve a problem I have an alternative solution:

Create a database that ends at the time where you want to insert zeros.
The DSes should be of type GAUGE and the heartbeat should be very high.
Now update the database: insert a zero at the time you want the zeros
to end.  RRDtool will modify each entry.  Now alter the DS type and
the heartbeat using "rrdtool tune".
